Abstract:
This study sought to determine the efficacy of the Wheeler Coping Skills Program for Parents of Adolescents. Twenty-six parents were assigned to either an experimental group or to a control group. The experimental group participated in an eight-week presentation of the Coping Skills Program. The control group received no treatment. Subjects were assessed on the Conflict Tactics Scale, Four Parent-Adolescent Situations, the Ways of Coping Scale, the Parent-Adolescent Communication Checklist, and the Parenting Skills Inventory. In addition, the Goal Attainment Scaling was used. Significant treatment effects were found on three of the four Reactivity Subscales, and on the Rapport Subscale. The Coping Skills Program for parents of Adolescents appeared: effective in reducing reactivity of parents exposed to the program, and ineffective in any of the other ways measured. Parents were, however, very successful in attaining goals they set for themselves.
