This study aimed to assess the impact of a video-based interactive guidance (VIG) training program on parents’ anxiety, depression levels, coping styles, and interactions with their infants. The sample comprised eight children aged 24-40 months years diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and/or developmental delay. After the diagnostic process, the parents participated in a 4-session VIG parenting program. Pre- and post-implementation comparisons were made on various variables. Data were collected from mothers using sociodemographic forms, Beck Depression Inventory, State Trait Anxiety Inventory, The Ways of Coping Inventory, parenting attitudes styles, and Crowell procedure (PIR-GAS) scores. Our findings revealed that following VIG, the quality of parent-child relationships improved significantly compared with earlier assessments, as observed through PIR-GAS evaluations. Moreover, there was a notable decrease in ineffective coping styles among parents. The VIG outlined in this study proved to be a highly successful psychological therapy method for children and preschoolers. However, while these results are significant, evidence supporting this program’s effectiveness for mothers and children in early childhood is limited, emphasizing the need for further research.
