The present paper reviews procedures used to assess and implement generality of treatment when parents are trained as behavior therapists. Temporal, setting, behavioral, and sibling generality are examined. A variety of assessment procedures have been employed. Unfortunately, the more rigorous the method of assessment, the less positive the results have been. Few studies have systematically examined procedures to institute treatment generality. Future areas of research in both the assessment and implementation of generality of treatment effects with parents as therapists are discussed. © 1977 Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy.
