2024: Predicting Treatment Response of Adolescents with Serious Emotional Disturbance
Adolescents with disruptive disorders are often misdiagnosed and underserved. There is an urgent need to better understand strengths-based factors associated with treatment response in order to guide interventions to help them achieve their full potential. This 12-month longitudinal study examined whether changes in adolescent personal strengths and family functioning are associated with changes in adolescent behavioral and social functioning.
