ABSTRACT La conducta agresiva y la violencia han pasado a tener un lugar de relevancia en los problemas de nuestra sociedad, requiriendo intervenciones a múltiples niveles: individual, de grupo y también un abordaje a nivel de sistema. Presentamos las estrategias más utilizadas en el campo de la intervención para reducir el comportamiento agresivo, posteriormente haremos referencia a los programas que las incluyen, programas multicomponentes y programas multimodales. Debido a la estabilidad y la relación existente entre la conducta agresiva infantil y el desarrollo de trastornos de conducta y delincuencia posterior, nos referiremos también a los programas que se implementan en el área de la prevención, primaria y secundaria, es decir, de aplicación a nivel universal y aplicación sobre grupos de riesgo.

    ABSTRACT: The developmental research on verbal control of behavior, especially that conducted by the Soviet psychologists A. Luria (1959) and L. Vygotsky (1962), suggests a developmental progression by which the child's inner speech comes to assume a regulatory role. Results of a research program which included both naturalistic observational studies and experimental investigations fail to support Luria's age-related stages of development. However, the hypothetical developmental model offered by Vygotsky and Luria does provide a useful sequence which can be employed as a cognitive self-guidance treatment program. The theoretical and treatment implications of a research program on verbal control are examined. (22 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the effects of problem-solving skills training (PSST) and parent management training (PMT) on children (N = 97, ages 7-13 years) referred for severe antisocial behavior. Children and families were assigned randomly to 1 of 3 conditions: PSST, PMT, or PSST and PMT combined. It was predicted that (a) each treatment would improve child functioning (reduce overall deviance and aggressive, antisocial, and delinquent behavior, and increase prosocial competence); and (b) PSST and PMT combined would lead to more marked, pervasive, and durable changes in child functioning and greater changes in parent functioning (parental stress, depression, and overall symptoms). Expectations were supported by results at posttreatment and 1-year follow-up. PSST and PMT combined led to more marked changes in child and parent functioning and placed a greater proportion of youth within the range of nonclinic (normative) levels of functioning.

    ABSTRACT: This study examined critical pretreatment variables related to the engagement and retention of families in mental health services designed to reduce serious childhood aggression. One hundred and twenty-four families of 5- to 9-year-old boys who met diagnostic criteria for conduct disorder were randomly assigned to receive either parent-only, child-only, or combined parent-child treatments. Premature termination was greatest in the parent-only condition. Pretreatment attributional motivations that were externalizing-oriented showed a clear association with premature termination. Moreover, assignment to a treatment condition that did not match parents' incoming motivations was predictive of premature termination. Overall, the findings have implications for the further study of barriers and facilitators for the delivery of mental health treatment for childhood conduct problems, especially with regard to pretreatment motivational cognitions and engagement issues.
