Author information

UCLA School of Medicine, USA.


A standardized 12-week cognitive-behavioral social skills package in which parents assisted children with socialization homework assignments, was presented to 52 nonpsychotic outpatient boys, many of whom were diagnosed with DSM-III-R Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Results demonstrated that the Thought Problems factor of the mother-completed Child Behavior Checklist aided in predicting changes in teacher-rated aggression. DSM-III-R diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder predicted changes in teacher-rated withdrawal subsequent to treatment. The need for research to determine which children benefit from which treatment was discussed.
