STAND Research Support

Research on STAND has been funded by several sources including the National Institute of Mental Health, Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation, American Psychological Association, American Psychological Foundation, and the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.

You can read about STAND’s effectiveness in the following research papers:

Sibley, M.H., Graziano, P.A., Kuriyan, A.B., Coxe, S., Pelham, W.E., Rodriguez, L.M. et al., (2106). Parent-Teen Behavior Therapy + Motivational Interviewing for Adolescents with ADHD. Journal of Consulting & Clinical Psychology, 84, 699-712.

Sibley, M.H., Pelham, W.E., Derefinko, K.D., Kuriyan, A.B., Sanchez, F., & Graziano, P.A. (2013). A Pilot Trial of Supporting Teens' Academic Needs Daily (STAND): A parent-adolescent collaborative intervention for ADHD. Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment, 35, 436-449.

In these papers we randomly assigned families to receive STAND or seek typical services in their communities. In these papers, teens who participated in STAND showed bigger improvements than the control group in attention, organization and time management skills, and on task behavior during homework time. Parents who participated in STAND experienced greater stress reduction, collaboration with the teen, and increased use of behavioral strategies at home to support the teen.
