Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n3 p560-68 Jun 1994
Used Edwards-Nunnally method to investigate change rates from cohort of older adult outpatients (n=92). Cohort improvement rate was 51%, and deterioration rate was 5%. However, improvement rates for clients with major depression and adjustment disorders were greater than 70%. Change rates of student/staff therapists and of clients treated in clinic versus homes were not significantly different. (Author/NB)
