The Development of Family Resilience: Exploratory Investigation of a Resilience Program for Families Impacted by Chemical Dependency. Chris Lum. May 2008.

"The main finding of the process evaluation is that CF! can be implemented with quality and fidelity in community agencies. The outcome evaluation on 62 families suggests positive medium size (Cohen's d = .52 to .70) improvements in four of the five family outcomes (cohesion, communication, family strengths and resilience and organization) measured and one small positive reduction in family conflict (d = .15). Likewise, four of the five parenting outcomes (parent involvement, supervision, efficacy, and positive parenting style) improved with medium effect size (d = .50 to .60), but parenting skills only had a small positive improvement (d = .18). These are excellent outcomes equivalent to other family skills training programs and in some cases larger. "
