Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This program is an evidence based intervention for behavioral in pre-adolescent children (grades 5 and 6). Continuing the work of the Fast Track Program, currently under contract, this intervention targets children who are beginning to show signs of severe aggression and social dysfunction at

school. Children who begin to exhibit aggression as pre-adolescents are much more likely to have histories of substance abuse, interpersonal violence, and criminal behavior in their adolescence. By targeting these children before their behavior has become extremely dangerous or unmanageable, this

program has been proven to reduce the occurrence of these problems, and to improve functioning in school. Studies have shown that children who demonstrate aggressive behaviors have maladaptive coping skills and misperceptions of conflict or threat. This program teaches positive strategies for coping

with perceived conflict or threat, as well as an understanding of the participant's feelings and motivations behind inappropriate behaviors. The Coping Power program involves an intervention with aggressive children and a simultaneous program for their parents, to increase positive motivations at

home as well as at school. The facilitator's guides include step-by step instructions for accurately implementing this evidence-based program. This is the corresponding workbook for parents which includes worksheets and monitoring forms to track progress and reinforce the skills learned in the group

sessions.

Synopsis:

The Coping Power Program is designed for use with preadolescent and early adolescent aggressive children and their parents and is often delivered near the time of children's transition to middle school. Aggression is one of the most stable problem behaviors in childhood. If not dealt with effectively, it can lead to negative outcomes in adolescence such as drug and alcohol use, truancy and dropout, delinquency, and violence. This program has proven effective in helping to avoid these types of problems.

The parent component of the program consists of 16 group meetings also held during the 5th and 6th grade school years. Parents are taught ways of reinforcing their children's positive behaviors, as well as effective discipline techniques for eliminating negative behaviors. Skills for improving family communication, providing academic support in the home, and building family cohesion are also a focus. Parents also learn how to give effective instructions and establish age-appropriate rules and expectations for their children at home. In addition to these basic parenting skills, the program describes relaxation techniques that parents can use to deal with their own stress. Tips for taking care of personal needs and effective time management strategies also help to ease the challenges of parenting an aggressive child.
