From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parent Management Training (PMT) is a wide array of different educational programs, designed to increase the parenting skills of parents to children with problematic behaviors such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). PMT was first developed in the 1960s by Alan E. Kazdin, PhD., director of the Yale Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic at Yale University. [1]. Many parent management programs emerged based on behavioral principles (see Behavior analysis of child development). The most famous were built from Gerald Patterson work or Connie Hamph's work. These programs were build on the principles of teaching parents to use rewards and punishment to shape behavior directly and the use of communication programs to change contingencies in directly.
