Jones, Richard R.
The paper describes the methodology used in an ongoing, independent evaluation of the teaching family model, also known as "Achievement Place," a community-based group home treatment program for predelinquent and delinquent adolescents aged 12-16. Youths referred by courts and other agencies live with surrogate parents, in groups of eight, for about nine months. The paper outlines evaluation procedures aimed at determining relative effectiveness of the teaching family program and comparison rehabilitation programs. There are seven graphs and charts summarizing the criteria used for the comparison (Author/MPB)
