Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n5 p1069-74 Oct 1994
Examined factors that predict dropping out of therapy among children referred for treatment of oppositional, aggressive, and antisocial behavior. Several factors related to family (socioeconomic disadvantage, adverse child-rearing practice), parent (stress, life events, history of antisocial behavior), and child functioning (severity and chronicity of antisocial behavior, lower intelligence quotient, peer relations) predicted premature termination of treatment.
