Who’s In Charge? aims to reduce parents feelings of isolation; challenge parents feelings of guilt; loosen deterministic thinking about causes (e.g. “he can’t help it because he has ADHD or saw his father being violent”); create a belief in the possibility
of change; clarify boundaries of what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour; examine strategies for creating meaningful and practical consequences for unacceptable behaviour; reinforce progress and provide emotional support while they attempt to become
more assertive parents; explore anger, both child and parents’; encourage assertiveness; and encourage self-care.
