This chapter applies the use of behavioral parent training for the problem of Oppositional Defiant Disorder in a child. The behavioral theory basis of parent training is discussed, followed by empirical support for this approach. Techniques covered include: behaviorally specifying goals for change and tracking target behaviors; positively reinforcing prosocial conduct through the use of attention, praise, point systems, and other reinforcers; and employing alternative discipline methods, such as differential attention, natural and logical consequences, time out from reinforcement, response cost, and the removal of privileges. Methods of behavioral therapy will also be covered, including lecture, discussion, modeling, and role-playing.
