Abstract

This article reports a quasiexperimental family level intervention study to measure effectiveness of a theory-based family therapeutic conversation intervention (FAM-TC) for families of children with asthma on perceived family support and asthma-related quality of life (QOL). Perceived family support increased significantly for mothers in the experimental group. The children of the parents in the experimental group reported significantly lower problems with asthma treatment on the treatment problems subscale of the asthma QOL scale after the intervention. These results highlight the benefit of therapeutic conversations for families of children and adolescent with asthma to support or enhance QOL.
