Study hypothesis

After an initial pilot study to test the viability of dubbing English voices on to American video tapes, this project now comprises a randomised control trial comparing patient training packages using newly dubbed video tapes with conventional management in child psychiatry centres. The project incorporates an evaluation of the cost effectiveness of the intervention and will follow-up both groups to determine whether gains have been maintained.
