Effects of Parent Communication Training on Child Behavior.
Two groups of parents of emotionally disturbed children (age range 5 to 11 years) received different forms of communication problems workshop training. One group focused on the parent child relationship alone. The other focused on both the parent child relationship and on the marital relationship or status. Results of pre- and posttesting indicated that children in both groups improved almost equally, that in the group receiving parent child training only, there was some generalization from the parent child relationship to the marital relationship, that there were some benefits to parents and children from the exclusive focus on the parent child relationship, and that the most meaningful individual adult growth took place in parents receiving marital and parent child communication training.
