Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The elements of coercion and psychosocial maturity may be important for determining the success of psychological treatment. In this study we interviewed 213 detained youth ages 14-17 and hypothesized that juveniles who are less psychosocially mature would be more likely to (A) perceive their treatment as more coercive and (B) view their treatment as less effective compared to more psychosocially mature youth. We also predicted (C) youth who felt more coerced would perceive their treatment as less effective. Using regression, results show that perceived coercion significantly predicts perceived treatment effectiveness.
