She concurred with Hungerford's observation that intervention effects seem to wear off after a period of time.
No significant intervention effects were found for the other scales.
These methodological problems can mask valid intervention effects.
Single-subject designs are preferred because they are highly flexible and highlight individual differences in response to intervention effects.
Expand the time course for studying intervention effects to examine longer-term alterations in outcome/disorder trajectory.
Partially because of a high drop-out rate, a significant intervention effect was not detected, though differences were in the expected direction.
