This presentation presents two phases of a study on the outcomes of support groups for adolescents with an addicted parent. A qualitative study was conducted to identify adolescent's perceptions of the benefits of support groups. A second study was then conducted to measure the outcomes of this caring intervention identified in the qualitative study: increased knowledge regarding addictions, improved relationships, enhanced coping, higher resiliency, and improved scholastic performance. The second study used a three group randomized sample with pretest posttest design and a sample of 150 adolescents identified as having an addicted parent. The five outcome hypotheses tested were after support group participation participants will have: 1) increased knowledge, 2) improved relationships, 3) enhanced coping strategies, 4) higher resiliency, 5) improved scholastic performance. Subjects were recruited from school counselors, teachers, administrators, and school-based health center staff. Participants completed instruments at three intervals: pretest, posttest, and three months post intervention. Five data collection instruments are used to assess the outcomes of group participation: Knowledge assessment tool, Self Perception Profile, Inventory of Parent and Peer Attachment, Coping Responses Inventory for Youth, and the Health and Daily Living Inventory. Data analysis is Multiple Analysis of Variance for repeated measures. Programs are needed that support adolescents dealing with addicted parents. Implications for evidenced based and holistic praxis research in nursing will be discussed.
