Comparison of Day Treatment and Outpatient Treatment Programs for Young Adolescents with ODD.
Brammer, Robert; Sandorsky, Stacy
This paper compares scores on the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) at the initial interview and at the 90-day follow-up interview for children in day treatment settings with those children receiving weekly psychotherapy. The participants included 143 children between 10 and 15 years of age who were diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Analysis revealed that the demographic variables accounted for only 0.8% of the adjusted variance, but it was a significant predictor of changes from initial and ending CBCL scores. Only the participants' gender predicted improvements on the CBCL, with males showing more improvement over time. Treatment setting had no affect on improved behavior for either diagnostic group. Although the findings in this report are generally nonsignificant, they are important because they differ from the preponderance of research supporting day treatment programs. Further research is needed to compare day treatment programs to established outpatient treatments. (Contains 37 references.) (JDM)
