Psychological Differentiation. New York: Wiley. Ziller, R. , Smith, M. , & Long, B. H. (1969). Self-​esteem: a self-​social construct. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 33(1), 84–​95.  KLEIN INTRODUCTION This chapter summarizes the long-​term clinical and functional outcomes of hyperactive children in the New York Study who were followed prospectively for 33 years. This time span marks the longest follow-​up to date of children diagnosed with what is now termed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The self-​esteem scales were the same as used in the 5-​year substudy; social skills were assessed via the Situational Social Skills Inventory (Clark, 1974), which evaluates a subject’s responses to a set of hypothetical social situations, and the Means-​ Ends Problem Solving Procedure (Platt, Spivack, & Bloom, 1971), which evaluates a subject’s understanding of social scripts. Though impressions of ADHD and other symptoms were primarily based on the clinical interviews and not on reports from parents or teachers, parents of 65 probands and 43 controls were interviewed regarding aspects of family and their child’s functioning.

The strongest predictors of police involvement were the emotional instability of the proband, family SES, family mental health, and child-​rearing practices. For car 24 24 Attention D eficit H yperactivity D isorder accidents, their overall number and the number of accidents with bodily injury were not associated with any predictor variables. Cost of damage, however, was most strongly predicted by the proband’s low frustration tolerance, as well as by the emotional climate in the family home. Finally, the extent of alcohol use was most strongly predicted by baseline family rating; whether the proband was currently using nonmedical drugs was most strongly predicted by IQ, antisocial behavior, and family mental health.
