The Child and Family Mental Health Evaluation Project. Summary of Fall 1980 Data Analysis.
Hayes, William A.; And Others
This document contains the report of the preliminary analysis of data collected during site visits to Head Start centers conducted in the fall of 1980 as part of the Child And Family Mental Health (CFMH) Evaluation Project. The report is limited to data from two of the three components of the evaluation project -- the process component and the impact component. (Data from the third component, the ethnography component, are included in the Phase III final report.) The process component of the evaluation was designed to provide a descriptive analysis of the CFMH Project, while the impact component was designed to determine the extent and type of changes occurring as a result of the CFMH Project interventions. Following a brief description of the Head Start program, the CFMH's demonstration project, and the CFMH's evaluation project, the results from the data analysis, their interpretation and future implementation are discussed. Data tables from the process and impact components of the evaluation are appended. (Author/MP)
