The primary purpose of this study was to determine the social validity of the Family Check-Up (FCU), an evidence-based parenting intervention by Asian American immigrant families. We collected survey data to determine whether Asian American immigrant parents and White parents differed in their perception of the significance, relevance, and appropriateness of the FCU in treating child behavioral problems. In collaboration with a community-based agency, parents with preadolescent-adolescent children (9 to 13-years-old) were recruited in Sacramento, CA and Davis, CA.
This study had the following objectives:
a) Determine the social validity of the FCU for Asian American parents.
b) Determine differences in social validity ratings of the FCU between Asian American and European American/White parents.
c) Determine differences between Asian American and European American/White parents in the parenting behaviors targeted in the FCU.
