Abstract

Aim
To review and meta-analyse Mellow Parenting interventions for parent–child dyads at high risk of adverse developmental outcomes.

Method
Using Preferred Reporting Items of Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines, we extracted all published evaluations of Mellow Parenting and Mellow Babies programmes. We identified published studies with randomized controlled trials, quasi-experimental or within-subject pre–post designs. We incorporated ‘grey literature’ for unpublished publicly available evaluations. Effect sizes were calculated for impact of Mellow Parenting on parental mental health and child behaviour. Data were extracted on demographics, age of participants, country, and potential sources of bias.
