Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this study was to analyze data collected through the administration of a schedule to the records of the Dade County Child Guidance Clinic, Miami, Florida during the first 11 years of the Clinic's existence, in order to ascertain if there was an age, sex, and/or referral source pattern in the cases which were opened. Data were collected from 4,706 cases with whom the Clinic staff had contact for one or more interviews. The Child Guidance Clinic serving Dade County opened for service in January, 1948, and the records were examined from that date through December, 1958. The hypothesis of this study is that there is an age, sex, and/or referral source pattern revealed in the distribution of cases opened during an 11-year period at the Dade County Child Guidance Clinic, Miami, Florida, and that there are no differences in these patterns between the first 5 years and the last 5 years of the Clinic's 11-year existence. The word "pattern" is used to mean a distribution which was evidenced consistently throughout the Clinic records and which could be expected to continue unless extensive changes are made in Clinic policies or within the community"--Introduction.
