Based on Research Conducted at OSLC
An investigation of parent-management training efficacy with a sample from a rural Oregon county population receiving court-ordered supervision.
The Healthy Family Project was a collaborative effort including OSLC, Lincoln County Community Corrections, the Lincoln County Child Advocacy Center, and Lincoln County DHS/Child Welfare that investigated parent management training efficacy and the predictive validity of motivational and cognitive factors in accounting for successful participation in parenting groups and improved outcomes for parents and children. The sample was taken from a rural Oregon county population receiving court-ordered supervision. This project included the short-term goal of promoting an immediate safer environment for high-risk children and determining the intervention’s efficacy in improving family member social and performance skills and ultimately reducing the cyclical, multi-generational repetition of criminal behavior.Year Project Began: 2005
