A follow-up study in the child guidance field usually stems from an interest in the amount of success met with in past treatment endeavours. From the material obtained by interviewing former patients or speaking to persons close to them it often becomes possible to arrive at some conclusions as to the benefits derived by these patients from past contacts with the clinic. Such a study may also serve to indicate the need for refinements in the present treatment approach which might add to the type of service given in the future.
