Abstract

This commentary examines the effectiveness of Parent Management Training (PMT) as an intervention for children with conduct disorder (CD). Included is a discussion of the difficulties inherent in treating CD, the conceptual relevancy of PMT in treating conduct disordered children, the empirical support for PMT's effectiveness, and comments regarding the limitations of PMT in treating CD. It is proposed that in regard to the treatment of CD, PMT is a conceptually sound approach that has strong empirical support regarding effectiveness and by nature is highly amenable to community dissemination. Given the complexities of CD, however, it is suggested that a multisystemic approach to care will likely be needed in which PMT represents an important component.
