Day Treatment for Adolescents: A Five-Year Status Report.
Friedman, Robert M.; Quick, Judy
This paper describes the participants, treatment features and outcomes of a day treatment program for adolescents with emotional and behavioral problems, who had been formally adjudicated "dependent." Characteristics of the 133 adolescents served over a 5-year period are presented along with a chart of referral sources for each year of the program. The multi-dimensional treatment model, emphasizing a supportive, caring environment, is described including behavior management, education, family services, counseling, and conflict resolution. Results of the program are presented for graduates, non-completers with high attendance (more than 50 days), and non-completers with low attendance (less than 50 days). Implications drawn from the results are discussed in a concluding section. (MCF)
