Initial Test of the Feasibility and Social Validity of a Transdiagnostic Cognitive Behavioral Intervention with Children with, or At-Risk for, Disabilities

This study sought to determine the feasibility and social validity (acceptability) of a new cognitive behavioral intervention (CARE) for students in the upper elementary grades. Results of the study showed the program to be both feasible and acceptable by school stakeholders. Overall, the program seemed to be more acceptable to teachers and students in the 5th and 6th grades compared to those in the 3rd and 4th grades. Student outcomes were varied, with 3 of the 5 students experiencing visually compelling reductions in problem behaviors, while the other two maintained their baseline problem behaviors. In the following we will discuss the results with respect to the research questions and provide limitations and future directions for research.

Engelli veya Engel Riski Altındaki Çocuklar için Transdiyagnostik Bilişsel Davranışçı Müdahalenin Fizibilite ve Sosyal Geçerlilik Ön Testi

Bu çalışma, ilköğretim sınıflarındaki öğrenciler için yeni bir bilişsel davranışsal müdahalenin (CARE) uygulanabilirliğini ve sosyal geçerliliğini (kabul edilebilirliği) belirlemeye çalışmıştır. Çalışmanın sonuçları, programın okul paydaşları tarafından hem uygulanabilir hem de kabul edilebilir olduğunu göstermiştir. Genel olarak, program 5. ve 6. sınıftaki öğretmenler ve öğrenciler için 3. ve 4. sınıflardakilere göre daha kabul edilebilir gibi görünmektedir. Öğrencilerin sonuçları değişkendir, 5 öğrenciden 3’ü görsel olarak zorlayıcı problem davranışlarında azalmalar yaşarken, diğer ikisi temel problem davranışlarını sürdürmüştür. Aşağıda araştırma sorusuna ilişkin sonuçları tartışacak, çalışmanın kısıtlılıklarından ve gelecek çalışmalara verebileceği yönlerden bahsedeceğiz.
