Brief Report: Identifying Potential Positive Reinforcers in a Residential Treatment Center for Female Adolescents who are Conduct Disordered
This study compares the ratings of potential reinforcers for two sample populations, residentially placed females who are conduct disordered (CD) and normal females. It was anticipated that the CD population would rank potential reinforcers lower than the normal population; however, the results contradict this hypothesis. It was found that females who are CD consistently rated potential reinforcers higher than the normal female sample. Possible explanations for this finding are addressed and future research needs are discussed.
