Abstract

Clinical, sociodemographic, and systems risk factors for attrition at a child guidance clinic were identified. All patients who completed the intake process were followed through various clinic phases. Lower socioeconomic status and low family cohesion predicted dropout. Dropouts and continuers were equally psychiatrically impaired. The Family Environment Scale was the only standardized measure that distinguished between dropouts and continuers.
