This study investigated the effects of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) on maternal tolerance for child behavior problems. Additionally, the study examined correlations between maternal stress, maternal tolerance, and child behavior problems at pre- and post-treatment. Results revealed significantly higher tolerance for misbehavior following treatment with PCIT as self-reported on both the Child-Rearing Inventory (CRI; Brestan, Eyberg, Algina, Johnson, & Boggs, 2003) and the Problem Scale of the Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory (ECBI; Eyberg & Pincus, 1999), but not on the discrepancy score of the ECBI. Results supported previous findings that stress would decrease following PCIT. Finally, results revealed a correlation between maternal stress and tolerance. Implications and limitations of these findings are discussed. ( en )
