In recent years programmes for parents have become a strategy for the promotion of health in children. The group becomes an effective medium of social influence by being a source of understanding, expression of feelings and support. The objective of the study is to test the effect that group integration has on the family self-concept and to find out the impact it has on socialization patterns. The sample comprises 190 parents who were given a self-report that measured the sense of group, self-concept (self-efficacy as a preventive agent, family self-esteem, satisfaction with the role played) and educational styles (communicative, supporting). The results show that the sense of group optimises the psychosocial resources that advocate parents becoming effective agents for change, since they feel able to create the family conditions that help parents to put into practice the most suitable socialization patterns.
