This study was an evaluation of a recently developed intervention for parents who maltreat their children. The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of an unmodified Behavioural Parent Training programme (Triple P) with an augmented version of the programme (Pathways). The modified programme was designed to target risk factors associated with maltreatment including attributions and emotional regulation. Fifteen participants whose children had been removed from custody by a statutory agency were divided between the experimental conditions, Triple P (N=8), and Pathways (N=7). The study focused on shifts in parental cognitions. These were evaluated using the following measures: the Eyberg Child Behaviour Inventory (ECBI), the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS), the Parent Anger Inventory (PAI), Parents Attributions for Child's Behaviour Measure (PACBM), and the Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAPI). Due to high attrition in one group (Triple P) a between groups comparison was not possible. However, assessment of improvement in the 10 remaining participants was possible. Overall the findings tended to indicate that the augmented programme did not result in any significant improvement in the parents' self reported problems. Implications of these results are discussed including issues of the utility of Behavioural Parent Training for parents who maltreat their children.
