The present study compared parent and teacher evaluations of behavioral problems in a sample of school-age child psychiatric inpatients on admission and at 5-month follow-up. Both parents and teachers viewed changes in children's emotional/behavioral problems over the course of the follow-up period rather similarly. In general, parents and teachers viewed children's behavior as significantly improved relative to pretreatment.
