In four years' with 168 adolescent male Job Corps patients, the authors found that a warm, supportive therapeutic relationship contributed to treatment success. Sixty percent of the patients were self-referred; these were generally treatment successes. Patients who were retarded, homosexual, or had antisocial personalities had low success rates; the remaining patients were helped substantially. The authors feel that the crucial component of successful treatment lies in the synergism of psychiatric care and the growth-enhancing qualities of the Job Corps environment.
