dc.description.abstract This study examines changes in parents' perceptions of their child's problem behaviors. These parents were enrolled in a parent training course to learn child management techniques. Their children had either ADHD and/or behavioral problems. There were 16 parents that participated in an 8 week training session based on C. Cunningham's (1989) Community Parent Education Program (COPE). Parents were asked to complete the Home Situations Questionnaire (HSQ) on the first and last days of the group. They were also asked to complete 3 informational surveys on the last day. Parents' perceptions of their children's problem behaviors decreased in total number of situations and in the severity of the behaviors within these situations. In addition, most parents reported high levels of satisfaction with the course. Parents who are trained in child management techniques may perceive a reduction in children's problem behaviors. en_US
