dc.description.abstract This thesis examines demographic data from 1358 clients from a mental health center in Anderson, Indiana in terms of the client's discharge record. It was hypothesized that there would be demographic data identified that would increase the therapist's ability to predict those most likely to drop from therapy. Support was obtained for this hypothesis, suggesting the client's socioeconomic status as the most reliable source of dropout identification.It was also hoped that by incorporating the cooperation of therapists in completing a questionnaire, particular therapist behaviors would be identified as effective tools in returning a dropout back to therapy. Therapist's demographic data were also to be examined in an attempt to suggest characteristics that may dispose a client toward premature termination. Unfortunately, obtaining the cooperation of the therapists proved more difficult than anticipated. Possible explanations were discussed in the transcript. Future research directions are also discussed.
