Asthma is a chronic illness that affects approximately seven million children and adolescents in this country. Teens seem to be at a higher risk for poor asthma health outcomes due to the tumultuous changes associated with adolescence. The purpose of this pilot study is to determine if a behavioral intervention, Coping Skills Training (CST), can increase health and psychosocial outcomes for teens with asthma. Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory provides the guiding framework for this study. Nine students with asthma ages 14-17 years were recruited into the study. During a series of small group discussions, students in the treatment group were taught skills in the following areas: social problem-solving, communication, cognitive-behavioral modification, and conflict-resolution. Both the treatment and the comparison groups received routine asthma care at the school-based health clinic. The treatment and comparison group were pretested and posttested after the completion of the CST program at 1, 3, and 6 months. Instruments include measures of asthma self-efficacy, asthma quality of life, asthma self-care, and an asthma health diary. The six month follow-up will be completed this fall. Parametric and non-parametric statistics will be performed to analyze the data.
