Outcomes of a study about the effectiveness of an intervention using video feedback for vulnerable families, called Interaction Guidance Therapy (IG), are presented. The sample was composed by 19 dyads -parent and children between 2 and 10 years-, participants in social programs of family intervention. The level of behavior and emotional adjustment of children and adults was assessed, by means of a pre-post design with a single group. Statistical significant differences were found (p<0.05), with improvements in children problems, and in general wellbeing and anxious-depressive symptomatology of the adult, but not in the variables of contextual stress neither in the social relationships of the adult; IG seems to work better with children younger than 6 years of age. These results indicate that IG would be effective to improve the wellbeing and mental health of dyads in psychosocial risk requiring more research to support this preliminary trend.
