Parents' and teachers' acceptability of conjoint behavioral consultation

The present study examined parents' and teachers' acceptability of conjoint behavioral consultation for children with problem behaviors at school and at home. Also examined was the relationship between perceived treatment acceptability and treatment outcome, and time to treatment effectiveness. An A/B design was used and participants included 14 children, their parents, and teachers. Results indicated that conjoint behavioral consultation was an equally acceptable intervention prior to and following implementation for both parents and teachers. Results also indicated that parents' perceptions of treatment acceptability at posttest were not related to the effectiveness of the intervention as measured by direct observations. On the other hand, teachers' perceptions of treatment acceptability following implementation were found to be positively related to the effectiveness of the intervention. Furthermore, both parents and teachers perceptions of treatment acceptability were found to be significantly related to perceptions of treatment effectiveness and time to effectiveness. Results are discussed in light of their practical and theoretical implications.
