Traits, characteristics, or human qualities are relatively meaningless unless they can be anchored to some kind of denotable behavior (Brandt, 1981).
Of these criteria, two basic ones will be used for classifying current research on intervention: (1) whether the interventions--the independent variables or treatments--are empirically denotable and can be reliably enacted by practitioners (these features would enable implementation of interventions with integrity [Yeaton & Sechrest, 1981] and, hence, replication in subsequent studies and in practice) and (2) the extent to which the outcomes against which the effectiveness of interventions is assessed were measured with sufficient specificity to allow reliable replication.
