- Public TitlePromotion- and prevention-oriented goals in a parenting intervention.
- Scientific TitleDoes a promotion/prevention framed parenting intervention improve maintenance of initial change in positive parenting? A short-term randomized controlled trial.
- hypothesisParents who adopt promotion-oriented goals during initiation phase, show better initiation of positive parenting behavior than parents who adopt prevention-oriented goals during initiation phase.
Parents who adopt prevention-oriented goals during maintenance phase, show better maintenance of positive parenting than parents who adopt promotion-oriented goals during maintenance phase.
The process by which parents' goal-orientation leads to behavior maintenance is explained by differences in satisfaction with change.
Parents show the largest behavior change when the orientation of their goals are congruent with their dispositional orientation.

- InterventionsThe parenting intervention consists of one session in which parents individually receive advice on how to praise the desired behavior of their child effectively. In the two weeks after the session, parents practice with effective praise using a diary.
- Primary outcomePrimary outcomes are parenting behavior, parents' satisfaction with change and parents' dispositioned goal-orientation
- Secondary outcomeSecondary outcomes are disruptive child behavior and parents' sense of competence regarding parenting
- TimepointsT0 = pretest

- Brief summaryParenting interventions aim for sustained change in parent-child interaction patterns to prevent child behavior problems. Yet, rates of initial changes in parenting and child behavior have not consistently translated into similar rates of longer term changes in parenting and child behavior. Rothman (2000) proposed that the manner in which parents set their goals and expectations affect their ability to initiate and maintain a specific behavior differently. Parents with promotion oriented goals (favorable outcomes that could be approached) tend to adopt optimistic expectations about future outcomes, which motivates behavioral initiation. These optimistic expectations may however complicate parentís ability to be satisfied at a certain moment which complicates parentís ability to maintain behavioral change. Parents with prevention oriented goals (unfavorable outcomes that could be avoided) tend to adopt expectations that are already met or easily could be met which motivates behavioral maintenance. Whereas parentís dispositional goal-orientation determines the a priori probability of adopting a particular goal, situational factors may elicit parents to adopt a goal that is different from their disposition. Using promotion- and prevention-framed messages during initiation phase and maintenance phase, the present study aimes to test whether parents' situational goal-orientation (prevention or promotion) is related to better initiation and maintenance of positive parenting behavior to reduce child disruptive behavior, whether this should be congruent with their dispositional orientation, and whether the effect of goal-orientation on behavior change is mediated by differences in satisfaction with change.
