The purposes of this pilot study were to provide communication skills training to enhance the ability of mother-daughter dyads in conflict management and investigate whether better conflict management relates to the prevention of unwanted pregnancy. The study was guided by a synthesis of systems theory and symbolic interactionism and used a pretest, post-test repeated measures design. The hypotheses were: (1) Mother-daughter dyads who participate in communication skills training will demonstrate more skills in communication and conflict resolution, greater satisfaction with the family system, and increased perceptions of family caring at 3 months and 12 months; (2) Teens will demonstrate fewer pregnancies or repeat pregnancies when compared 12 months after training. The sample consisted of 21 mothers-daughters (ages 14-17 years) dyads from Northeast Ohio. The Mission Possible Intervention (Riesch & Tosi 1993) was conducted over a 3 week period of 2 hrs. per week. The instruments consisted of Family Adolescent Communication Scale (Barnes & Olsen, 1985); Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2) (Straus, 1995; Adolescent Family Caring Scale (AFCS); Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale III (Olson, Portner, & Levee, 1985). Analysis will consist of Independent t-test and repeated measures, MANCOVA and MANOVA.
