The authors evaluated a school-based group counseling program aimed at reducing parent–adolescent conflict and assessing the unique contribution of movie therapy. Participants were 173 Arab adolescents who scored high on conflict with parents. Students were divided among 3 conditions: a treatment intervention with movies, a treatment intervention without movies, and a no-treatment control group. Results indicated more favorable outcomes in both interventions compared with the control group, with no effect of movies.
