Table 6) prosocial behavior, significant interaction effects (group X time) were found on PKBS Social Skills scale (F (2, 34) = 5.65, p = 0.02, [eta][p.sup.2] = 0.15); fathers in the IG reported a larger increase on children's social skills from pre- to post-assessments than fathers in the CG.
Following the same trend, univariate tests revealed no significant interaction effect on PKBS Oppositional/Explosive and PKBS Anti-Social/Aggressive subscales.
Table 6) significant interaction effects (group X time) were also found on PKBS Social Skills scale (F (1,34) = 6.29,p = 0.01, [eta][p.sup.2] = 0.15); mothers in the IG reported a larger increase on children's social skills from pre- to post-assessments (T1 to T2) than mothers in the CG.
Teacher ratings on the PKBS of Craig's behavior in the classroom indicate baseline levels of Problem Behaviors and Social Skills at a standard score of 117 and 73, respectively (see Table 2).
