Abstract

Comparing school- and home-based interventions to school-based treatment for disruptive behavior disorder: A meta-analysis (under the direction of Dr. Stephen Trotter). This study investigates the relationships among perceived aggression in children by reviewing, summarizing, and aggregating current quantitative research. The participants for this investigation consisted of adolescents from preschool to 12th grade. The data was collected from psychological and educational publication databases using computer assisted location tools PsycINFO, Psychology: A Sage Full-text Collection, and Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). This research sought to determine whether home- and school-based behavioral interventions were more effective in reducing disruptive behavior than school-based interventions alone. Although the effect size is small for the school- and home-based interventions, the results indicate that school- and home-based interventions are more effective in reducing disruptive behavior than school-based only interventions.^
