What is Parent management training?

Parent Management Training (PMT) is a type of behavioral therapy that focuses on improving the relationship between parents and children, and addressing problematic behavior in children. PMT is based on the premise that parents play a crucial role in shaping their children’s behavior and that by learning effective parenting skills, parents can improve their children’s behavior and overall well-being.

PMT typically involves a series of sessions with a therapist who helps parents develop skills in areas such as positive reinforcement, communication, problem-solving, and discipline. Parents may learn specific techniques for managing challenging behaviors, such as tantrums, defiance, and aggression.

PMT is often used to treat children with behavioral problems, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), and conduct disorder (CD). However, it can be beneficial for all parents who want to improve their parenting skills and strengthen their relationship with their children.

Overall, PMT is a collaborative and empowering approach that helps parents become more confident and effective in managing their children’s behavior.
