A Feasibility Study of Enhanced Group Triple P — Positive Parenting Program for Parents of Children with Attention-deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

  • Fiona E. Hoath (a1) and Matthew R. Sanders (a2)

The aim of this randomised controlled trial was to examine the efficacy of an Attention-deficit/ hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)-specific, Enhanced (Level 5) Group Triple P intervention. Twenty families with a child with clinically diagnosed ADHD aged between 5 and 9 years participated. Families were randomly assigned to either an enhanced intervention group (Enhanced Group Triple P; EGTP) or a wait list (WL) condition. Using parent reports of child behaviour, parenting practices and family functioning in addition to teacher reports of child behaviour in the school environment, parents in the EGTP condition reported significant reductions in intensity of disruptive child behaviour problems, aversive parenting practices and increases in parental self-efficacy when compared to the WL condition. Parents' reports at 3-month follow-up indicated the gains in child behaviour and parenting practices achieved at post-intervention were maintained.
