  • problems
  • This trial addresses a serious and all-too-frequent public health problem, namely early-onset disruptive behavior problems in young children. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • At the conclusion of the study, the investigators will know whether the online-delivered program works as well as an established staff-delivered program, with respect to child disruptive behavior problems, parenting, parent/family stress, consumer satisfaction, and value analysis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Disruptive behavior problems (DBPs), or conduct problems, in young children represent a major public health challenge that is not only highly prevalent but also, left untreated, heighten risk for adverse mental health and developmental outcomes in adolescence and adulthood. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study is intended to shed light on the impact and potential benefits of a viable online parenting intervention for childhood disruptive behavior problems, but the results from this study are also intended to help the mental health field to better understand more broadly the potential advantages and disadvantages of online interventions over traditionally delivered interventions, particularly in light of expense minimization/effectiveness analysis.
