Abstract and Keywords

A multilevel social learning and neurobiological model of developmental and behavior change processes related to externalizing spectrum symptoms and disorders is described. Coercive family social processes related to the development of externalizing disorders and which serve as key proximal targets of change in empirically supported social learning family interventions are considered from theoretical and research perspectives. Conceptual models are offered which integrate research on coercive family processes with emerging neuroscience research to account for and enhance the durability and generality of changes in externalizing symptoms and adaptive functioning engendered by social learning family interventions. Extant research that examines the complementary roles of coercive social processes and neurobiological processes as mediators of change engendered by social learning interventions is described and evaluated. Finally, recommendations are made to guide subsequent intervention research in which social learning and neurobiological processes are treated as complementary, multilevel mechanisms of change in social learning interventions targeting externalizing disorders.

Keywords: coercive family process, social learning, family and parenting interventions, neurobiological processes, multilevel mediators of intervention effects
