This review provided a detailed component analysis of self-control treatment literature with elementary school children. The review was limited to the published school-bases, self-control treatment literature available from 1967 to 1984. A standardized rating procedure, the Self-Management Intervention Checklist (SMIC), was developed to rate self-management investigations according to: (a) subject and setting characteristics, (b) training and follow-up details, and (c) an analysis of the self-management intervention components. The results indicate a lack of adequate attention to: (a) subject variables, (b) training considerations, and (c) difference in self-management interventions. The limitations and qualifications of current self-management training and implications for developing a more effective self-management training technology are discussed.
