  1. Dodge, KA (1999). Cost-effectiveness of psychotherapy for child aggression: First, is there effectiveness? Comment on Shechtman and Ben-David (1999). Group Dynamics: Theory, Research, and Practice, 3(4), 275-278. [doi]

    Prevention programs and interventions to reduce aggression in children can be evaluated in terms of costs of treatment versus long-term economic and social benefits. The group psychotherapy approach by Shechtman and Ben-David is quite brief and seems to demonstrate short-term reductions in aggressive behavior. If effective, this approach could be cost-beneficial. But its enduring efficacy is unclear, and the potential iatrogenic effects of placing aggressive children with other aggressive children make this approach risky.
