Abstract/Summary Behavioural Family Intervention such as the Teen Triple P Positive Parenting program are an efficacious intervention for treating and preventing adolescent behavioural problems. For parents of adolescents with mild to moderate behavioural problems, Triple P has recently developed a series of brief two hour discussion group programs that focus on helping parents manage common adolescent behavioural difficulties. The currents study is a preliminary investigation into the effectiveness of a discussion group titled ‘Reducing Family Conflict’. Participants were twenty-five parents of young adolescents (12-15 years) who resided in the Brisbane area and were seeking help in managing conflict with their adolescent. All participants completed an online survey before and three weeks following participation in the discussion group. During the discussion group parents were taught positive parenting strategies and were aided in the development a parenting plan. Participants also received a take-home workbook and follow-up telephone call. Results from this preliminary investigation revealed that following the program parents reported a significant reduction in parent-adolescent conflict, parental stress, dysfunctional parenting practices and adolescent problem behaviours, as well as an increase in parental efficacy. Limitations and future directions are discussed.
