|Evaluation and effectiveness|
A single randomised controlled trial was undertaken, showing significant improvement in child behaviour post-implementation and significant improvements for carers and parents. The program appears to be beneficial as a prevention and early intervention program for preschoolers with externalising and/or internalising difficulties who were at high risk of maltreatment.
