THE IMPACT OF A PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL PREVENTION PROGRAM FOR BEHAVIORALLY AT-RISK STUDENTS: EQUIP For Educators

VIEWS: 33 PAGES: 40

This study examined the effectiveness of a multicomponent psychoeducational prevention program (EQUIP for Educators) Two aspects were examined: (1) if there was a significant relationship among the three psychometric measures: Social Skills Rating System (SSRS), Children's Inventory of Anger (ChIA), Sociomoral Reflection and Measure-Short Form (SRM-SF); and (2) if the treatment (EQUIP for Educators) and control groups differed on the SSRS, ChIA, and the SRM-SF, from pretest to posttest, and if these effects were different by levels of achievement. This exploratory study was a first attempt to expand EQUIP for Educators from a treatment-only program to a treatment-and-academic-learning program. Subjects (N = 45) aged 10.1-11.8 years (M = 10.9) participated in this 10-week study. A quasi-experimental 2 X 2 X 2 repeated measures MANOVA was conducted. A Pearson's product-moment correlation was conducted to examine the statistical correlation of 3 dependent variables: (1) SSRS; (2) ChIA; (3) SRM-SF. Results of the Pearson r analysis indicated statistically significant correlations between the SSRS, ChIA, and the SRM-SF (p .05). A statistically significant multivariate effect for the Time X Group interaction was found (p . 001, ES = .86). Further, a statistically significant multivariate main effect for achievement was found across the dependent variables (p .001, ES = .56). The univariate 2 X 2 ANOVA for the Time X Group interaction evinced statistically significant results for the social skills (p . 001, ES = .77), anger management (p .001, ES = .59) and the sociomoral reasoning (p .001, ES = .46). EQUIP for Educators treatment was effective in equipping behaviorally at risk students with: (a) skills for managing anger and correcting cognitive distortions; (b) social skills for constructive social behavior; and (c) remediating development delay in moral judgment. Results suggest that EQUIP for Educators had an impact on cognitive distortions, social skills def

       This study examined the effectiveness of a multicomponent psychoeducational prevention program (EQUIP
       for Educators) Two aspects were examined: (1) if there was a significant relationship among the three psy-
       chometric measures: Social Skills Rating System (SSRS), Children’s Inventory of Anger (ChIA), Sociomoral
       Reflection and Measure-Short Form (SRM-SF); and (2) if the treatment (EQUIP for Educators) and control
       groups differed on the SSRS, ChIA, and the SRM-SF, from pretest to posttest, and if these effects were dif-
       ferent by levels of achievement. This exploratory study was a first attempt to expand EQUIP for Educators
       from a treatment-only program to a treatment-and-academic-learning program. Subjects (N = 45) aged 10.1−
       11. 8 years (M = 10.9) participated in this 10-week study. A quasi-experimental 2 X 2 X 2 repeated measures
       MANOVA was conducted. A Pearson’s product-moment correlation was conducted to examine the statistical
       correlation of 3 dependent variables: (1) SSRS; (2) ChIA; (3) SRM-SF. Results of the Pearson r analysis indi-
       cated statistically significant correlations between the SSRS, ChIA, and the SRM-SF (p < .05). A statistically
       significant multivariate effect for the Time X Group interaction was found (p <. 001, ES = .86). Further, a sta-
       tistically significant multivariate main effect for achievement was found across the dependent variables (p <
