dc.description.abstract This study evaluates the effectiveness of a parent support group on the relationship between parents and adolescents within a church community. Subjects were referred to the group by the priest of the local Catholic Church. The group consisted of five married couples and the researcher, who adopted an observer — participant role. The group ran for seven sessions in total. Motivation to begin such a group was prompted by the researcher's experience of working with parents and adolescents who had very strained relationships with each other. Data was collected using qualitative and quantitative questionnaires. Results revealed that the parent support group was effective in improving relationships between parents and adolescents. en_US
