Cabiya, Jose J.; Padilla, Lymaries; Manzano-Mojica, Joel; Perez-Pedrogo, Coralee
The author has developed a treatment manual that has integrated technical cognitive-behavioral training in resolution of conflicts, from a social focus and in a group format. This intervention model includes: discussion and practice of the necessary components for the effective resolution of conflicts, making of decisions, identification of signs in nonverbal communication, practice of the appropriate use of communication during difficult situations, and techniques of self-control. This study constitutes one of the first steps in examining the effectiveness of this cognitive-behavioral intervention developed for children with a diagnosis of ADHD with comorbid conditions that exhibit depressive symptomatology.
