This current paper presents a description of Parent Management Training (PMT) as an effective intervention technique. One of the most frequent mental problems among offenders is conduct disorder. PMT is given in order to modify the behaviour of offenders with conduct disorder. PMT provides favorable results for both parents and children. PMT is a psychological therapy that teaches parents to handle destructive actions of their children. PMT's goals are to strengthen parental competence in coping with behavioral issues and to improve the adaptive behaviour. A total of 20 samples were selected from Tirunelveli for the purpose of the experiment. The experimental research design has been employed for the purpose of the present study. It is clearly evident that there is a behavioral change in offenders after the intervention.
