Title: The Campsite Experiment: A research design to test diet-
Source: International Journal of Biosocial Research. 1984 Vol 6(1) 66-
Pub. Type: journal-article.
Abstract: The "campsite experiment" was created as a pilot project to
evaluate the effectiveness of a stringently defined diet as an
intervention to improve the physical and emotional behavior of
conduct problem children. Six 8-13 yr olds were
randomly assigned to either the treatment or control group.
Two sets of measurement data were provided by the parents
without knowledge of the group assignments after a 4-day
experimental period. Ss were also pre- and posttested to
evaluate their ability to discriminate and reproduce a grid of
similar letter forms. Positive changes in behavior, observed
by the parents, were attributed to the dietary intervention.
Pre- and posttest measurements confirmed observed differences.
It is hoped that primary consideration will be given by health
professionals to this method of less interventive behavioral
management. (31 ref) (PsycINFO Database Copyright 1985
