A Review and Empirical Comparison of Three Treatments for Adolescent Males with Conduct and Personality Disorder: Mode Deactivation Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Social Skills Training
Apsche, Jack A.; Bass, Christopher K.; Siv, Alexander M.
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v1 n4 p371-381 2005
This treatment research study extended the results of Apsche, Bass, Jennings, Murphy, Hunter, and Siv (2005), from behavioral data to standard measures of psychological distress. In Apsche, et. al. (2005) results suggest that Mode Deactivation Therapy (MDT) was more effective than Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Social Skills Therapy (SST) in reducing the overt behavior of adolescents diagnosed with conduct and personality disorders. The results of this extension of the Apsche, et. al. (2005) study suggest that MDT was superior to CBT and SST in reducing external and internal psychological distress as measured by the Devereux Scale of Mental Disorders (DSMD) and child behavior check list (CBCL). (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
