A new Japanese research study suggests a parent-training program for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder might prove to be an effective mainstream behavioural treatment. Researchers from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) say the new approach is geared to develop culturally appropriate parent-training programs for Japanese families of children with ADHD.
The study appears in the journal Japanese Psychological Research. In the proof-of-concept program, researchers found reductions in children’s ADHD symptoms and improvements in parent-child relationships.
