Abstract

Compares teachers' ratings of the school behaviors of children entering an outpatient clinic, a day psychiatric program, and an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Many of the ratings did not discriminate among the three groups. Children starting outpatient versus day treatment were rated as higher in aggression, anxiety, and hostile withdrawal, and children beginning outpatient and day treatment versus inpatient treatment, were reported as more skilled socially.
