Parenting programmes are provided to parents to enhance their knowledge, skills and understanding, and so improve both child and parent behavioural and psychological outcomes.

These programmes are typically offered over eight to 12 weeks, for about one to two hours each week, although the range varies from as few as two sessions to as many as 20.

Professor Barlow summarises evidence from six Campbell systematic reviews.
