Manby, Martin (2005) Evaluation of the impact of the Webster Strattion Parent-Child videotape series on participants in a midlands town n 2001-2002. Children and Society, 19. pp. 316-328. ISSN 0951-0605

Small groups of parents experiencing problems in managing the behaviour of young children took part in parenting programmes in a Midlands city in 2001-2002 based on the Webster Stratton Parent-Child Videotape Series. Programmes were evaluated using standardised measures and qualitative data. Most participants who completed the programme (N = 29) in this small scale study had improved scores on all measures. The largest (positive) effects were in reductions in mean total parenting stress levels. Qualitative data confirmed high participant ratings for the facilitators and appreciation for group support; and indicated that partners' views were an important variable. Further research is needed about programme impact on non-completers (including fathers and minority ethnic participants) and about the influence of non-participating partners.
