Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Given the associations between externalizing behaviors and childhood unintentional injuries (CUI), this pilot study evaluated whether an empirically supported behavioral parent training program, Group Triple P, decreased risk for CUI.

METHODS: Parents of 19 children ages 2-8 referred by their child's primary care physician for child externalizing behavior problems completed measures of child injury risk pre- and post-Triple P.

RESULTS: Child injury risk and disruptive behavior problems decreased significantly.

CONCLUSIONS: Overall, our findings indicate that teaching behavior management and parenting skills to parents has the potential to decrease injury risk in their children, despite this not being an explicit target of intervention.
