This chapter takes a cognitive-behavioral approach to intervention with parents who have physically abused their children. A description of the theoretical basis for such an approach is explored, followed by available empirical support. Behavioral parent training and other cognitive-behavioral techniques — problem-solving, self-talk, and cognitive-re-structuring — are presented and applied to a case example.

Keywords: cognitive-behavioral therapy; problem-solving; self-talk; cognitive restructuring
