Existing reviews of parent training have methodological…

TLDR
Evidence indicates that parenting programmes have the potential to be cost-saving in the long term, but gaps in the evidence include: lack of follow-up of families who drop out of programmes, absence of control groups in longer-term follow-ups, and little information about costs and effects of programmes in routine practice.

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.

TLDR
Prospective studies of community samples of children provide the best opportunity to understand more thoroughly the adult outcomes of conduct disorder and there is a compelling argument in favor of an increased emphasis on primary prevention efforts.
Group-based parent-training programmes for improving emotional and behavioural adjustment in 0-3 year old children.
TLDR
It is suggested that parenting programmes can be effective in improving the mental health of infants and toddlers, but there is insufficient evidence to know whether the short-term benefit of these programmes is maintained over time, and further research is required.

TLDR
