Got a bub with challenging behaviour? You could be eligible for this free trial.
Are you struggling with your toddler’s behaviour? Is every day a challenge to overcome tantrums, anger, stubbornness and disobedience? You may be eligible to take part in a FREE intervention trial.
The University of New South Wales Parent-Child Research Clinic is looking for parents of toddlers aged 12-23 months old to take part in the 7-week long trial.
Over the duration of 7 weeks, researchers will use a version of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to help them better manage their child’s emerging problem behaviours and maintain a warm and loving relationship.
This version of PCIT has been adapted to meet the needs of toddlers with emerging disruptive behaviour. PCIT is a scientifically-supported intervention for reducing problem behaviours in young children.
The researchers hope that by offering this intervention in toddlerhood, this will help prevent more significant behavioural difficulties from developing later in life.
The intervention involves 7-weekly sessions, which run for approximately one hour. The first session is with the parents alone and the remaining six sessions involve a therapist working with both parent and child together.
All families will be asked to complete three comprehensive assessments involving questionnaires, laboratory tasks, and an interview at pre-intervention, post-intervention and 6-months follow-up so that the researchers can examine outcomes.
If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, enquire today to find out if you are eligible.
