Abstract (summary)

The following is an outcome study in a day treatment program using archival data. Demographic data, IQ scores, an intake Child Behavior Check List and Identifying Behavior Checklist (at 4 points) were collected in an archival study of 70 children, during their 1st grade year in a day treatment program in order to predict outcome, as measured by a treatment team decision to place the child in a less restrictive setting.

IQ was not correlated with a successful outcome, (r(70) = .00, p = .486). Broadband scores on the CBCL did not predict membership in the good outcome group, (Wilks' lambda =.891, approximated F(2,66) = 2.69, and p =.053). Narrowband scores on the CBCL did not predict membership in the good outcome group, (Wilks' lambda = .813, approximated F(8,61) = 1.75, and p = .104). One-way ANOVAs indicated that three narrowband scales were associated with good outcome: Somatic complaints (F(8,61) = 6.18, p < .05), Anxious/Depressed (F(8,61) = 9.03, p < .05) and Thought Problems (F(8,61) = 7.49, p < .05). </p>

Two areas on the IBC predicted membership in the good outcome group: social skills (F(2,65) = 6.33, p = .014) and task completion (F(2,65) = 4.24, p = .043). Implications for School-Clinical Psychology are discussed.
