In this Research Update, the following articles will be summarized: Article One looks at the reliability and validity of adolescent self reports in a treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Article Two by Michael Robbins, James Alexander, and Charles Turner investigates the usefulness of reframing as an intervention in disrupting defensive family interactions. Article Three by Neil Jacobson and his colleagues explores Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy as a new marital therapy. This new marital therapy is compared with traditional behavioral couple therapy. Article Four focuses on the association among trauma exposure and children with oppositional defiant disorder and attention deficit-hyperactive disorder. Article Five by Brad Bushman, Roy Baumeister, and Angela Stack describes two studies on catharsis as a method of reducing aggression and the conclusions on the ineffectiveness of this method. Finally, Article Six, by Toni Zimmerman, Shelley Haddock, and Christine McGeorge qualitatively examines the popular self-help book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus to ascertain how John Gray's themes match current family therapy research and feminist theory.
