Enhancing the public health approach to evidence-based parenting support: Efficacy of a low intensity online intervention (2012–2017)

While evidence-based parenting programs have been shown to be effective for the treatment of child conduct problems, their effective dissemination is a major challenge for the field. Online interventions can increase the reach and accessibility of parenting support, and reduce the prevalence of child behaviour problems. This study is the first to evaluate a brief online parenting program for parents of children with conduct problems. It is expected that program completion is associated with improved parenting practices and child behaviour. The study will further our understanding of the value of internet-based interventions as part of a comprehensive population-level strategy.
