Parental guidance is essential for active parenting in child therapy. This study aimed to survey the main characteristics of parenting programs in a group of articles published in recent years, and to verify similarities and differences between them, correlating these with the outcomes of the selected articles. The systematic literature review method was used in PubMed, PsycINFO, LILACS, and SCIELO databases. The search was conducted from June to August 2019. It included articles published between 2013 and 2018, of group programs for parents, caregivers or family members, training/mentoring, and health promotion/prevention groups, with a minimum of four sessions. A total of 20 articles met all these criteria and were included in the present study. The articles included in the review showed gains and positive results from the interventions and their importance in the treatment and/or prevention, and health promotion of children.

Keywords : systematic review; programs; parental guidance; cognitive-behavioral approach; group.
