What is Parent Management Training (PMT)?
The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) has cited Parent Management Training as the only well-established treatment for behavioral problems. PMT is an evidence-based program for children with moderate to severe behavioral difficulties.
PMT is a short-term treatment program with caregivers learning new skills weekly for twelve to sixteen sessions. Caregivers are trained to effectively deal with negative behavior so that it significantly decreases and more importantly they learn how to increase positive behavior.
Quite often parents have tried to get their children help and after years of ineffective treatments, the behavior has often escalated to the point of hospitalization or out-of-home placement. You deserve treatment that works and so does your child!
PMT has been proven over and over again to SIGNIFICANTLY change even the most difficult and challenging behaviors.
