This thesis comprises an evaluation of a group-based parent training program for primary school aged children with behavioural and/or emotional problems. The study compares the relative effectiveness of two versions of Monash Health’s adapted Exploring Together program, with and without the parent-child interactive component, in terms of the impact on child behaviour, parenting behaviour, parenting stress and sense of competence. This thesis contributes to a deeper understanding of the effectiveness of group-based parent training programs for treatment of child behaviour problems in primary school settings, as well as highlighting areas requiring further clinical and research attention.
