Synopsis: A child welfare agency invites caregivers, who are being reunited with their children after removal due to neglect or abuse, to do a self-assessment of their own parenting skills, using the Caregiver Wish List. The strengths and weaknesses identified by the caregivers are used to plan the skills that are targeted in the individualized, home-based parent management training. Findings indicate that caregivers are willing to describe parenting challenges and their desire to improve specific skills. Outcome data on the child's functioning, using the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS), revealed significant change in overall functioning, positive changes in mood and compliance in the home, and reduction in substance use.
