Abstract

Introduction: This study aims to investigate the effect of group positive parenting program training on reducing externalizing behaviors in children with attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) in Turkmen families. Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial in 2013, 22 mothers of children with ADHD from Kalaleh, Golestan Province, were randomly divided into two groups: positive parenting program group during 8 sessions (n=10) and control group (n=12). Data were collected using the parent-report form of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL). Data were then analyzed using SPSS 18 by means of ANCOVA, independent t-test, and chi-square tests. Results: The results showed that in the experimental group, children�s externalizing behavior significantly reduced after group positive parenting program training compared to the control group (P<0.004). Positive parenting program produced a modest effect size. Conclusion: Since positive parenting program training for mothers is effective in reducing children�s externalizing behavior, this training program is recommended along with pharmacotherapy to be implemented to reduce behavior problems in children with ADHD.
