The Research was conducted on a semi-experimental design of pre- and post-test with control group. The research instrument used for collecting data in this project was a questionnaire of parent-children conflict measurement (cp). The population of the study consisted of the first grade girl students from high schools in Behbahan in the school year of 2008-09. Using cluster random sampling method, forty students were selected who had the most conflicts with their parents and they were divided into experimental and control groups. The experimental group participated in 10 sessions of group counseling. Each session took around 75 minutes. Besides descriptive statistics, independent-sample t test, multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), and multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) were used to analyze the data. The result of the analysis was investigated at the level of α<0.05 and results obtained from this research showed that problem solving skills training according to D’Zurilla and Goldfried leads to decrease conflict between parent-child, verbal aggression, and physical aggression. It can also cause an increase in reasoning among the girl students of the experimental group.
