Prinz, Ronald J.; Miller, Gloria E.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n3 p645-50 Jun 1994
Randomly assigned 147 families with aggressive child (age 4 to 9 years) to standard family treatment (SFT) focusing exclusively on parental management or to enhanced family treatment (EFT) that also promoted discussions of adult issues. EFT produced significantly lower dropout rate than SFT overall but particularly for high-adversity families. Dropouts were clearly distinguishable from completers on several dimensions. (Author/NB)
