Abstract

The present study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the ACT - Raising Safe Kids Program in different socioeconomic contexts. The sample included 64 mothers of children aged 3-8 years, and 64 other caregivers, divided into three groups according to family socioeconomic level and type of school of the children (C-Public, B-Public and B-Private). The maternal parenting practices and behavior of the children were evaluated pre- and post-intervention with the ACT Program in group. Regardless of the socioeconomic level of the families and the type of school of the children, the ACT Program was effective in improving maternal parenting practices and behavior of the children, according to the perception of the mothers and other caregivers. The findings demonstrate the validity of the ACT Program in Brazilian context for socioeconomic levels B and C and public and private schools. (C) 2016 Colegio Oficial de Psicologos de Madrid.
