Abstract

The methods used to implement and evaluate the two studies will be presented. Study I is first described in considerable detail. Because many of the procedures for Study II were similar to those of Study I, only the differences will be presented for Study II. The focus of the methods in this chapter is on the youth participants. This section begins with a discussion of the referral and selection process for the youth and their families. A brief discussion of the recruitment and selection of the student volunteers follows. Next, the six conditions—five intervention groups and one “treatment-as-usual” control group—are presented. The section closes with an explication of the various measures used.
