The dissertation examines the exportability of R. A. Barkley's (1997c) Defiant Children manualized parent training program. The systematic replication study was conducted in 2 non-university sites located northeast of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Thirty one parents or caregivers of children diagnosed with ADHD between 2 and 12 years participated in the study. Data was analyzed from pretest-posttest self-report responses. Significant findings were found on various subscales of the Parenting Stress Index (Abidin, 1995) and the Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory (Eyberg & Pincus, 1999) instruments. Nonsignficant results were found on the revised edition of the Marital Satisfaction Inventory (Snyder, 1991) and on the second edition of the Beck Depression Inventory (Beck, Steer, & Brown, 1996). Finally, the necessity for ongoing research across professional disciplines within the ADHD population is highlighted.
