Course Description: This article reviews the state of research on psychosocial treatments for disruptive behaviors in children 12 years of age and younger. Group parent behavior therapy, and individual parent behavior therapy with child participation alone were classified as well-established treatments. Thirteen treatments were classified as probably efficacious. Each individual program in a treatment family may not be equally effective given the variation in effectiveness of different program previously documented. Systematic investigations of implementation, dissemination, and uptake are needed to ensure that children and families have access to effective treatments. Investigations into how to blend the strengths of the effective approaches into even more effective treatment might also lead to greater impact.
