Mothers' evaluation of a parent training program completed three and one-half years earlier

Academic Article


  • The purpose of the present study was to examine the long term effects of a parent training program. Mothers who completed treatment, a mean of 3.6 yr earlier, were asked to fill out measures that examined parent perceptions of child adjustment and parent satisfaction with treatment. Of the 68 mothers to whom questionnaires were mailed, 34 (50%) returned them while 10 questionnaires were returned with an insufficient address. A comparison of pre- treatment, post-treatment and follow-up child adjustment scores indicated that the mothers perceived their children as significantly better adjusted after treatment and that this effect maintained at follow-up. Generally favorable responses were also reported by mothers on a consumer satisfaction measure. © 1983.
