Reimers, Thomas M.; Wacker, David P.
Behavioral Disorders, v14 n1 p7-15 Nov 1988
Ratings of treatment acceptability were obtained from 20 parents who sought professional assistance in managing their children's behavior. Initially, degree of disruptiveness of a proposed treatment and parental willingness to attempt it were significantly related to acceptability. Once treatment had been attempted, however, its perceived effectiveness had the greatest influence on acceptability. (Author/JW)
