The authors explored the relative merits of outpatient and day treatment for 30 children with severe behaviour problems. The effectiveness of treatment on behaviour, self-perception, and social and family functioning was assessed. Day treatment was found to be more effective in reducing behaviour problems, alleviating depressive symptoms, increasing social skills and improving family functioning.
