AbstractChildren with special needs have posed a great challenge to parenting. The multiple family groups developed in the 1960s in Western societies have become an increasingly acceptable intervention approach to help families with special needs, but its application in Hong Kong has been limited. The authors launched a one-year project in March 2008 to examine the applicability of this model in resolving parenting difficulties in a Chinese context and, through the use of in-depth posttreatment interviews, to assess if the participants viewed this approach as beneficial. Parents who were interviewed reported positive changes at intra- and interfamilial levels. The implications of the study are discussed. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
