The Incredible Years is offered to parents whose children display severe disruptive behaviour problems. Its aim is to promote positive parenting and reduce harsh punishment. Parents meet with two trained group-leaders weekly for 12-14 sessions. They practice various parenting skills enlightened by video-vignettes. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the programme in Sweden. Method: Parents of 48 children aged 4-8 participated in the study. A multi-informant, multi-method strategy was used. Results: Preliminary results (pre – post intervention) indicate a statistically significant (p< .01), and clinically relevant (effect sizes >.80), decrease in children’s disruptive behaviour. Final results will be presented and discussed.
