This study examined the relationship of limit-setting interventions and six-month outcomes in assertive community treatment. Case managers from forty Veterans Affairs assertive community treatment teams at different sites documented their use of limit-setting activities with clients during the first six months of treatment. The authors assert that clients exposed to limit-setting interventions had poorer outcomes than others on many measures, suggesting that within the limits of a nonexperimental study, such interventions do not appear to prevent adverse outcomes.
