Evidence-based interventions are often unavailable in everyday clinical settings. This may partly reflect practitioners’ assumptions that research evidence does not reflect “real-world” conditions. To examine this further, we systematically assessed the clinical effectiveness of parent management training (PMT) for the treatment of child disruptive behavior across different real-world practice contexts. We identified 28 relevant randomized controlled trials from a systematic search of… 
Clinician adoption of Parent–Child Interaction Therapy: A systematic review of implementation interventions
TLDR
This systematic review aimed to identify and synthesise implementation interventions that have sought to increase clinician adoption of PCIT in usual care settings and concluded that a fruitful line for future research would be to focus on the post-training period, particularly how best to support clinicians to adopt and sustainPCIT in their practice.
Effectiveness of Child-Focused Interventions for Externalizing Behavior: a Rapid Evidence Review.
Parent behavior management training (BMT) is well established as an effective, evidence-based treatment for children with externalizing behavior. Despite the wealth of data supporting BMT, many
Interventions Supporting Mental Health and Positive Behavior in Children Ages Birth-5 Yr: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
Occupational therapy professionals working with children younger than age 5 yr can use the results of this systematic review to guide clinical decision making related to mental health and behavioral outcomes.
Web-Based Parent Training Intervention With Telephone Coaching for Disruptive Behavior in 4-Year-Old Children in Real-World Practice: Implementation Study
TLDR
The implementation of population-based screening of Web-based parent training intervention with telephone coaching resulted in good feasibility, fidelity, accessibility, and similar satisfaction level post treatment when compared with intervention in RCT research setting.
Web-Based Parent Training Intervention With Telephone Coaching for Disruptive Behavior in 4-Year-Old Children in Real-World Practice: Implementation Study (Preprint)
TLDR
The implementation of population-based screening of Web-based parent training intervention with telephone coaching resulted in good feasibility, fidelity, accessibility, and similar satisfaction level post treatment when compared with intervention in RCT research setting.
Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Parent Group Interventions for Primary School Children Aged 4–12 Years with Externalizing and/or Internalizing Problems
TLDR
Findings support the use of parent group interventions as an effective treatment for reducing externalizing problems in children aged 4–12 years and programs had a limited impact on internalizing symptoms, indicating a need for further investigation.
What are the Optimal Combinations of Parenting Intervention Components to Reduce Physical Child Abuse Recurrence? Reanalysis of a Systematic Review using Qualitative Comparative Analysis
Parenting interventions are widely used to reduce physical child abuse, but evidence for their effectiveness is mixed, partly because standard methods for synthesising the effectiveness of
Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of parenting interventions for children with severe attachment problems: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Maternal sensitivity interventions show good outcomes in at-risk populations, but require further research with complex children, and a birth cohort with sequential attachment measures and outcomes across different domains is recommended with further, methodologically sound randomised controlled intervention trials.

Systematic review of practice-based research on psychological therapies in routine clinic settings.
TLDR
Clients receiving treatment as normally delivered within routine practice report significant relief of symptoms, however, the result of comparisons with efficacy benchmarks is dependent on the outcome index used.
Youth psychotherapy outcome research: a review and critique of the evidence base.
TLDR
Researchers found that studies were particularly weak in clinical representativeness of their samples, therapists, and settings, suggesting a need for increased emphasis on external validity in youth treatment research.
Randomised controlled trial of a parenting intervention in the voluntary sector for reducing child conduct problems: outcomes and mechanisms of change.
TLDR
It is suggested that a group-based cognitive-behavioural parenting programme, delivered by well-trained and supervised staff, can be effective in a community voluntary-sector setting, for reducing conduct problems and enhancing parenting skills.
The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of parent training/education programmes for the treatment of conduct disorder, including oppositional defiant disorder, in children.
TLDR
Parent training/education programmes appear to be an effective and potentially cost-effective therapy for children with CD, however, the relative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different models (such as therapy intensity and setting) require further investigation.

How usual is usual care in pragmatic intervention studies in primary care? An overview of recent trials.
TLDR
Researchers in primary care medicine should carefully consider the design of a usual care control group, especially with regard to minimising the risk of study-induced behavioural change.
Effects of psychological therapies in randomized trials and practice-based studies.
TLDR
Outcomes of completed treatments for depression in randomized trials appeared to be modestly greater than those in routine care settings and Transforming BDI scores into CORE-OM scores and vice versa may be a preferable alternative to effect sizes for comparisons of studies using these measures.
The clinical effectiveness of different parenting programmes for children with conduct problems: a systematic review of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
There was insufficient evidence to determine the relative effectiveness of different approaches to delivering parenting programmes, but parenting programmes are an effective treatment for children with conduct problems.
Evidence-based practice in child and adolescent mental health services.
TLDR
The readiness of the child and adolescent evidence base for large-scale dissemination should be viewed with healthy skepticism until studies of the fit between empirically based treatments and the context of service delivery have been undertaken.
