Objective: The present study aimed to determine the effectiveness of family empowerment with social-emotional learning on psychological disturbance and emotional expression in adolescents with substance abuse parents.
Method: The research method was semi-experimental with a pre-test-post-test design and a control and follow-up group. The statistical population consisted of teenagers with substance-dependent parents in Tabriz who had been referred to drug addiction treatment centers in Tabriz in the fall of 2021. Thirty people were purposefully selected and were randomly assigned into two experimental and control groups. Research data were collected using the depression, anxiety, and stress scale (DASS-21) by Lovibond and Lovibond (1995) and the emotional expression questionnaire (EEQ) by King and Emmons (1990) and were analyzed by variance analysis with repeated measurements.
Results: The results of the present study showed that family empowerment affects the emotional expression, depression, anxiety, and stress of adolescents with substance-dependent parents (P<0.01), and this effect was stable in the three-month follow-up (P<0.01).
Conclusion: According to the results, it can be concluded that empowering the family with a social-emotional learning program is one of the effective treatments for adolescents' psychological disturbance and emotional expression

Abstract [Persian]

هدف پژوهش حاضر تعیین اثربخشی توانمندسازی خانواده با یادگیری اجتماعی-هیجانی بر آسیب‌های روانی و ابرازگری هیجانی در نوجوانان دارای والدین مبتلا به سوء مصرف مواد بود. روش پژوهش حاضر نیمه آزمایشی با طرح پیش‌آزمون-پس‌آزمون و گروه کنترل و پیگیری بود که جامعه آماری آن را نوجوانان دارای والدین وابسته به مواد شهر تبریز که در پاییز 1400 جهت ترک اعتیاد به مراکز ترک اعتیاد دارویی شهر تبریز مراجعه کرده بودند تشکیل داده بود که از بین آنها 30 نفر به روش هدفمند انتخاب شده و به صورت تصادفی در دو گروه آزمایش و کنترل گمارده شدند. داده‌های پژوهش با استفاده از مقیاس افسردگی، اضطراب و استرس (DASS-21) لاویبوند و لاویبوند (1995) و پرسشنامه ابرازگری هیجانی (EEQ) کینگ و ایمونز (1990) گردآوری و به روش تحلیل واریانس با اندازه‌گیری مکرر تجزیه و تحلیل شدند. نتایج پژوهش حاضر نشان داد که توانمندسازی خانواده بر ابرازگری هیجانی و افسردگی، اضطراب و استرس نوجوانان دارای والدین وابسته به مواد اثربخش بوده (01/0>P) و این اثربخشی در پیگیری سه ماهه پایدار است (01/0>P). با توجه به نتایج پژوهش حاضر می‌توان نتیجه گرفت که توانمندسازی خانواده جزو درمان‌های اثربخش بر آسیب‌های روانی و ابرازگری هیجانی نوجوانان است.
