A Preliminary Analysis of the Effectiveness of Direct Home Intervention of Treatment of Predelinquent Boys Who Steal. Volume 12 Number 8.
Reid, John B.; Hendriks, A. F. C. J.
Between 1961 and 1971 a systematic series of investigations aimed at developing social-learning-based home intervention procedures for the treatment of hyper-aggressive children was carried out. As a result of this series of studies, a set of social learning techniques were developed, articulated, and cross-validated. The data from these experiments indicated that highly aggressive, pre-adolescent boys could be treated effectively in their homes by training their parents to use social learning child management procedures at an average cost of 25 to 28 professional hours per family. This paper; (1) describes some differences observed among stealers, non-stealers, and a control sample; (2) compares parents of these stealers, non stealers, and controls; and (3) describes the initial impressions of a new treatment sample of children whose primary referral problem was stealing rather than social aggression.
