Background & Objective: The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of three treating methods (behavioral mother training, Verbal self-instruction to the children, and pharmacotherapy) in children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder on maternal mental health changes.
Material & Method: In this semi-experimental study, 95 of mothers with ADHD children were selected by multi-stage sampling and accessible sampling and divided to four groups; Mother Behavioral training group, Verbal Self-instruction, pharmacotherapy and Control group. Data collection tool was General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). All of the groups were evaluated after the intervention in post-test and also 2 months later in follow up. Finally, data were analyzed using SPSS (ver15) and General linear models and Bonferroni post hoc test.
Result: Significant declines were observed in behavioral mother training group and pharmacotherapy in post test (respectively P=0.04, P=0.007), and follow up (P=0.002). In the verbal self-instruction and control groups, there were no significant differences in scores of maternal mental health among the pre test, post test and follow up.
