Chapter 7 discusses several issues that emerge in the clinical application of PMT pertaining to parent expectations and beliefs, adherence to treatment, and dropping out of treatment. Professional issues also are pertinent to treatment administration, including how PMT can clash with the training of mental health professionals and the various beliefs many professionals may bring to treatment. Perhaps the most central issue that can emerge in treatment is that the intervention may not work or work well enough for a given child and family. There are many options for what to do to repair failing programs during the course of treatment. These options are discussed and illustrated.
