  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: ADHD, parents' beliefs, parent training, treatment outcomes.

The study analyzes the impact of ADHD profile (school-aged children) on family functioning and changes in parental beliefs and difficult interactions resulting from a parent training. Parenting measures are: stress, anger, perceived control in parent-child interaction outcomes, self-efficacy, positive (warmth, involvement) or negative practices (inconsistent discipline, punishment). In post-training, there was a reduction of number and severity of child's behavioral problems; for parents decreased punitive discipline occurrences and levels of stress, and increased self-efficacy and perceived control. The utility of including parental beliefs both in the assessment of ADHD and parent training outcomes is discussed.
