IY is an empirically supported skill-based behavioral intervention for parents with children at risk or with early onset conduct problems. IY is designed to prevent and treat child emotional and behavioral difficulties including ADHD, ODD, CD, and SED by strengthening parenting skills, including increased use of positive and proactive discipline strategies and reductions in harsh, punitive, and inconsistent parenting. It promotes child social, emotional, and academic competence, reducing aggression and behavior problems in young children, and preventing long term problems like delinquency, school failure, substance abuse, criminality, and violence. It was designed for families with children with disruptive behavior problems and for parents facing multiple stressors associated with poverty and/or who experience mental health problems.
