Abstract

This study investigated the differential effectiveness of self-management and token reinforcement in the treatment of adolescents' disorderliness. The participants for this study were seventy-two (36 females and 36 males) inmates taken from a cluster of delinquent children (ages 9 - 18) of Remand Homes for boys and girls in Lagos State of Nigeria. A 2x2x3 pre-test post-test factorial design was adopted. Four hypotheses were tested based on analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA) at .05 level of significance. Data were collected using Disorderliness Inventory (DI) which has alpha reliability coefficient of .80. The result of the study revealed a significant difference in the effectiveness of self-management and token reinforcement in the treatment of disorderliness (P <.05), gender and socio-economic background of the subject did not interact with the treatments of disorderliness. Based on the result of this study, implications were pointed out.
