Residential Treatment of Emotionally Disturbed Children; An Evaluation of 15 Years' Experience
The author summarizes results from a thesis study of 54 children over a period of 15 years (1942-1957) in two juvenile residential treatment centers. The author distinguishes variables including diagnostic categories, awareness of need for treatment, and the relationship of these factors to the outcome of treatment. Briefly, he concludes that "children with character disorders would be more difficult to treat successfully than those with neurotic personality disorders," as the former must "gain controls over their behavior while the latter "require a more basic personality change."
