Boylin, William M.
Adolescence, v23 n89 p201-07 Spr 1988
Investigated whether family interaction influences the acting-out behavior of hospitalized adolescent psychiatric patients. Found families did contribute to acting out in the hospital but that the majority of acting out was not directly related to family contact. Recommends that the hospital engage the family in treatment and consider family contact in treatment planning. (Author/KS)
