Abstract

PURPOSE:

This article reports the findings of a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-Corrections Modified (DBT-CM) intervention upon difficult-to-manage, impulsive, and/or aggressive incarcerated male adolescents.

METHODS:

A secondary analysis of a subsample of 38 male adolescents who participated in the study was conducted. A one-group pretest-posttest design was used; descriptive statistics and t-tests were conducted.

RESULTS:

Significant changes were found in physical aggression, distancing coping methods, and number of disciplinary tickets for behavior.

CONCLUSION:

The study supports the value of DBT-CM for the management of incarcerated male adolescents with difficult-to-manage aggressive behaviors.
