Synopsis: Failure to participate in mental health treatment has been identified as a critical problem in relation to treatment fidelity and child outcomes. The purpose of this presentation is to present a social cognitive framework of treatment participatory behavior based on existing theoretical conceptions. This model integrates individual-level risk factors and experiential constructs: (a) Child characteristics (e.g. mental health functioning); (b) Background / context (e.g. family structure); (c) Self-efficacy; (d) Treatment outcome expectancies; and (e) Interest(s) in treatment. Implications for theory and clinical practice are discussed.
