Predicting outcome of inpatient CBT for adolescents with anxious-depressed school absenteeism.

Author information

Department for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University of Cologne, Germany.


Predictors of outcome of inpatient treatment based on manualized cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) were examined for 147 adolescents with anxious-depressed school absenteeism assessed at discharge and at 2 months after the end of treatment. Outcome measures were regular school attendance and a wide variety of mental health problems rated by adolescents and parents. Socio-demographic data, clinical ratings/diagnosis and adolescent-reported and parent-reported mental health problems were examined as predictors. Regression analyses indicated that none of the variables were able to predict regular school attendance in a clinically relevant way. Adolescent-reported and parent-reported mental health problems at intake predicted these symptoms at both discharge and follow-up (R(2) between 0.31 and 0.61).
