Therapeutic Assessment for Preadolescent Boys with Oppositional Defiant Disorder: A Replicated Single-Case Time-Series Design
Smith, Justin D.; Handler, Leonard; Nash, Michael R.
Psychological Assessment, v22 n3 p593-602 Sep 2010
The Therapeutic Assessment (TA) model is a relatively new treatment approach that fuses assessment and psychotherapy. The study examines the efficacy of this model with preadolescent boys with oppositional defiant disorder and their families. A replicated single-case time-series design with daily measures is used to assess the effects of TA and to track the process of change as it unfolds. All 3 families benefitted from participation in TA across multiple domains of functioning, but the way in which change unfolded was unique for each family. These findings are substantiated by the Behavior Assessment System for Children (Reynolds & Kamphaus, 2004). The TA model is shown to be an effective treatment for preadolescent boys with oppositional defiant disorder and their families. Further, the time-series design of this study illustrated how this empirically grounded case-based methodology reveals when and how change unfolds during treatment in a way that is usually not possible with other research designs.
