New research suggests there is a new gold standard among parent management training. The Chicago Parent Program was developed by Deborah Gross of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing to reduce behavioral problems among children, according to a July 17 press release from the school. It compares well to the Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, which researchers say costs more time and money compared to the Chicago program. The researchers published their findings last month in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Here is how the press release compares the two approaches:

The Chicago Parent Program:

  • Group-based learning structure that meets for two-hour sessions for a period of 12 weeks.
  • Treatment delivered by two trained clinicians; parents attend sessions without children
  • Learning is facilitated by watching and discussing video vignettes of real-life families. navigating common parenting challenges; problem-solving with other parents of children with challenging behavior.
  • Curriculum focuses on helping parents to clarify their child-rearing goals, learn limit-setting strategies, and develop problem-solving skills.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy:

  • Mastery-based, individual coaching model delivered in one-hour sessions.
  • Parents and children attend together.
  • Parents are coached by a trained therapist from behind a one-way mirror. Parents receive very specific guidance and positive reinforcement from the therapist regarding interactions with their child.
  • Treatment progresses at the rate parents learn and master the skills; treatment is completed once the parent has mastered all skills.

This article has been updated to include the name of the lead developer of the Chicago Parent Program.
