The aim of this paper is to determine the contribution of family protective factors in explaining satisfaction with family of youth with behavioural problems.

Following instruments were applied: Sociodemographic questionnaire, Adapted version of Family Resilience Assessment Scale (Sixbey, 2005), Family Adaptability and Cohesion Scale (Olson, 2010).    Data were analysed via by descriptive statistics and multiple regression analysis.
