Twenty-one clinical trials were synthesized using a random effects model substantiating that counseling generally produces a medium effect in treating conduct disorder in youth at termination (d+ = .30-.57; k = 28). However, the lasting effects at follow-up were unclear because few follow-up studies (k = 13) have been conducted (d+ = -.53 - .58), and only two randomized controlled follow-up studies were located. No effects of moderating variables were evident, and implications for counseling practice and outcome research were addressed.


  1. Examine the efficacy of counseling in reducing conduct disorder symptoms in school-age youth.
  2. Analyze the duration of symptom reduction in youth diagnosed with conduct disorder following treatment termination
