Abstract

This study drawing on a relationship-enhancement family/play therapy known as Filial Therapy (FT) attempted (i) to examine the changes that mothers report in their children's problem behaviors, (ii) to investigate the ways FT could affect parenting knowledge and skills, and (iii) to evaluate participants' perceptions about the FT intervention. To this end, twenty-four motherchild dyads were assigned randomly to an experimental group (n=12) and a control group (n= 12). Necessary quantitative data were gathered at pretest and posttest. Through observation and questionnaires, complementary qualitative data were also collected. In view of the results obtained, the current study concludes by the assertion that FT has potential to be utilized as a culturally responsive intervention.
