Abstract: Objective: To examine the effectiveness of a parent-child parallel group model that attempted to reduce parent-adolescent conflict.
Method: A single group research design with pretest, posttest, and follow-up assessments was employed.
Results: Results showed that the level of mother-adolescent conflict at posttest was lower than the level at pretest. The findings, based on the target problem rating, indicated that after the group intervention, both the mothers and adolescents perceived that the problems they had identified in the mother-child relationship had become less severe. The findings, based on subjective outcome measures, were also positive.
Conclusion: The present study provides some evidence to support the effectiveness of the parallel group intervention for social work practice.
