Developing Affective Skills in Mothers To Reduce Antisocial Behavior in Children.
This practicum attempted to modify the antisocial behavior of 25 early adolescent children classified as having emotional disturbances by a training program to facilitate the development of affective skills in their mothers. The 8-month training program involved discussion groups, social activities, and individual and/or small group meetings with the program developer. In the colloquia, mothers were exposed to issues concerning affective development using the taxonomy of Benjamin Bloom. Interactions between mothers and their children were observed during social activities and in home visits. Program evaluation indicated program success as indicated by high attendance of mothers at the colloquia and other meetings, observed improvements in affective skills, a gain in knowledge of factors that alter children's behavior, and a reduction in the recorded number of incidents of antisocial behavior by the children. Appendices include the intervention contract, the affective skills inventory, and a sample certificate of completion. Contains 20 references. (DB)
