Khemka, Ishita
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n5 p387-401 Sep 2000
The effectiveness of two decision-making training approaches in increasing independent decision-making skills of 36 women with mild mental retardation responding to hypothetical social interpersonal situations involving abuse was evaluated. The approaches addressed either cognitive and emotional aspects or only cognitive aspects of decision-making. Although both approaches were superior to a control, the combined approach was superior on several measures. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
