Changes Following Inpatient Child-oriented Family Treatment
Children receiving IFT (intensive family therapy) were assessed for symptom profile and global functioning before admission, 3 months after discharge and 1 year after discharge. Children were assessed by parents, children, their teachers and themselves. Parents were assessed by themselves at the same points in time through psychological self-report questionnaires.
The study is intended to explore covariates to change in children as well as in parents during (pre-treatment) the treatment and follow-up periods.
