The Effects of a Cognitive Strategy Intervention on the Problem-Solving Abilities of Delinquent Youths.
Hains, Anthony A.; Hains, Ann Higgins
Journal of Adolescence, v10 n4 p399-413 Dec 1987
Taught social problem-solving skills and self-evaluation to institutionalized delinquent adolescents as part of a cognitive-behavioral therapy program. Demonstrated improvement in problem-solving on the hypothetical dilemmas, however the self-evaluation procedure had little effect on performance. Follow-up data suggest maintenance of treatment gains and some generalization of improved skills to personal problem-solving. (Author/KS)
