This study set out to evaluate the treatment of 52 consecutive referrals to a Child and Family Centre. Mothers of referred children were interviewed before treatment and again 3 to 4 months later. The interview investigated the children's behaviour problems, their mothers' mental health and life quality, their attitudes and expectations of treatment, and their satisfaction with the treatment. Significant improvements were observed in children's behaviour problems, mothers' mental health, and some areas of the mothers' life quality. A significant correlation between the children's behaviour problems and their mothers' mental health was observed.
