Summary/Abstract: In this study, the effect of 12-18 Age Family Education Program (AEP) on family functions was examined in a quasi-experimental study. The families in the experiment and control groups of the study were selected by purposeful sampling method. Self-Assessment Scale, The Family Assessment Device (FAD) and Me as a Parent Scale (MPS) were used as pretest-posttest data collection tools. A 14-session Family Education Program was carried out in the experimental group. No study was conducted with the control group. In the experimental group, it was observed that there was a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test scores of the sub-scales of problem solving, parenting roles, affective responsiveness, affective involvement, controlling behaviors, and general functioning and there was no significant difference in terms of communication function. A significant difference was also found between the pretest and post-test means of self-regulation skills. As a result, it was determined that the family education program was effective on parents. In the control group, no significant difference was found between the pretest-posttest scores in the subscales of problem solving, communication, affective responsiveness, affective involvement and controlling behaviors. A significant difference was found between the pre-test and post-test scores of parenting roles and general functioning subscales. There was no significant difference between the pre-test and post-test means of the control group parents' self-regulation skills. In the control group, where training was not applied, there was no change in general.
