  1. Note. ECBI Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory; Scores > 132 on the Intensity scale and > 15 on the Problem scale were considered as clinically significant

Recovered Passed RCI and clinical significance; Improved Passed RCI but no clinical significance, Unchanged Unchanged RCI and unchanged or deteriorated clinical significance, Deteriorated Deteriorated in both RCI and clinical significance, False Positive improved clinical significance but unchanged RCI; RCI > 1.96 = Reliable Change Index improved and recovered categories.
