These briefings have resulted from a 30-month programme of work on early intervention for children with behavioural problems undertaken by Centre for Mental Health, with funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. The main focus of this programme is on how to improve the implementation of evidence-based parenting programmes in support of children aged up to 11 with behavioural difficulties.
