Abstract

This article examined sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of child treatment completers and noncompleters who received exposure-based cognitive-behavioral treatment. A total of 137 children (46% girls) and their parents (predominantly Euro-American and Hispanic/Latino) participated in this study (106 completers, 31 noncompleters). The majority of noncompleters received an average of 5 sessions. Findings were generally consistent with past research in terms of lack of differences between completers and noncompleters. Results are discussed in the context of previous child attrition research and directions for future research.
