What really happens in parent training?
The need to help families with conduct-disordered children is particularly urgent, for these “aggressive” children are at increased risk for being abused by their parents, as well as for school dropout, alcoholism, drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, adult crime, antisocial personality, marital disruption, interpersonal problems, and poor physical health. Thus in the absence of treatment, the long-term outlook for conduct-problem children is poor.
