Abstract

The purpose of the study was to describe aggressive behavior in inpatient adolescents and to identify individual characteristics and aspects of mental health treatment that are associated with changes in aggression over time. Type of treatment and treatment satisfaction were examined in relation to changes in aggressive behavior in an inpatient setting and 1 year later. High levels of aggressive behavior were reported at the study onset. Involvement in family therapy/parent training was related to reduced aggression over time. Parental satisfaction was inversely related to improvement. Results indicate the need to involve families in treatment following discharge from inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.
