New Research Study Finds FLIP IT ® to be an Effective Parent Training Program – The Center for School-Based Mental Health Programs at Miami University recently published an evaluation of the OH Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services’ state-wide pilot of the FLIP IT strategy. The independent evaluation concluded that FLIP IT appears to be an effective strategy for parents that: 1) decreased children’s challenging behavior, 2) increased children’s positive behavior, 3) improved parenting behaviors, and 4) decreased parent beliefs that their children are hard to manage. The researchers also reported that parents were “overwhelmingly satisfied” and “100% of the comments described positive outcomes.” They recommended that the state continue to sustain and support the use of FLIP-IT concluding that it, “offer(s) parents effective parenting skills that can improve the lives of their children and family members.” Click to learn about FLIP IT, read an Executive Summary, or the Full Report.
