MORALES CHAINE, Silvia  y  VAZQUEZ PINEDA, Fernando. Children Behavior Management Skills: Assessment of Knowledge in Health Professionals. Acta de investigación psicol [online]. 2011, vol.1, n.3, pp.428-440. ISSN 2007-4719.

The purpose of this study was to assess knowledge acquisition of children behavior management skills by professionals. Knowledge of skills use was assessed by a hypothetical breeding situations questionnaire interviewing nationwide to 294 health professionals using a pre experimental pre test post test design. Professionals responded to 13 hypothetical child rearing home situations indicating in each what management skill were to be used by adults. Results show that after a brief training, professional's knowledge of child behavior management skills use increase significantly over the 13 child rearing situations. It is concluded that the hypothetical breeding situations questionnaire was helpful to assess knowledge acquisition. Also professionals were able to report strategies for the strengthening of prosocial behavior, the correction of inappropriate behavior, the establishing of home rules, and family problem solving. Further research will show the process of skill acquisition through direct observation techniques of the hypothetical breeding situations used here.
