BOCHI, Ariane; FRIEDRICH, Daiana  and  PACHECO, Janaína Thais Barbosa. A systematic review of studies on parental training programs. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.2, pp. 549-563. ISSN 1413-389X.

Parent training is a practice that aims to organize the behaviour repertory issued by the parents when dealing with their children behaviour, becoming a frequent strategy used to work with family relationship issues. Trough a systematic review of the national and international literature, this article analyzed the methodological features of empirical studies about training for children and/or teenagers parents, conducted in group. 27 articles were analyzed, published between 2006 and July 2014, indexed in the Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde (Lilacs), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), Medline and PsycInfo bases. In the data analysis, the following categories were focused: article title, author, publishing date, study objective, audience, sample size, delineation, strategies of intervention and the main results. The results indicated that the most used design was the randomized clinical trial. Furthermore, most of the interventions were focused on parents or parents and their children. In addition, it can be observed that the cognitive-behavioural techniques were the most utilized techniques for the parents training. The present article discusses the limitations and the contribution for this field of study.
