Facilitation of Knowledge Utilization by Institutions for Child Development. Final Report.
Glaser, Edward M.; Ross, Harvey L.
The final report on facilitation of knowledge utilization by institutions for child development contains analyses of consultation-intervention in four different child care institutions (including psychiatric facilities and an orphanage), and a guide to providing individualized services in children's residential centers. Described in each case are actions taken by the consultants, interviews of staff members by an independent evaluator, and questionnaire data from institutional personnel. Also included are comments made by the project director and an analysis of overall results derived from two survey instruments (the Baseline Data Form and the Institution Self-Study Questionnaire). The guide for individualizing services considers such aspects as decentralization of decision making, staff roles in an interdisciplinary team, and the new role of management. Among four appendixes are suggestions for behavioral science consultants at children's residential centers. (CL)
