This article reports the findings of a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy—Corrections Modified (DBT-CM) intervention upon difficult-to-manage, impulsive, and/or aggressive incarcerated male adolescents.
A secondary analysis of a subsample of 38 male adolescents who participated in the study was conducted. A one-group pretest–posttest design was used; descriptive statistics and t-tests were conducted. Significant changes were found in physical aggression, distancing coping methods, and number of disciplinary tickets for behavior. The study supports the value of DBT-CM for the management of incarcerated male adolescents with difficult-to-manage aggressive behaviors. (Published abstract provided)
