Home-Based Services. Volume I. Series on Community-Based Services for Children and Adolescents Who Are Severely Emotionally Disturbed.
Stroul, Beth A.
This document is part of a series of monographs on community-based services for children and adolescents who are severely emotionally disturbed. The series is the product of a national study of community-based service approaches, which identified over 200 programs serving emotionally disturbed children and included visits to several programs representing a variety of service delivery approaches. This volume on home-based service approaches begins with a presentation of a model system of care, along with principles for service delivery. A literature-based discussion of home-based services is then provided, emphasizing their history, philosophy and goals, characteristics, service intensity and duration, service phases, linkages, clients, staff, resources, evaluation, and advantages and challenges. Detailed descriptions of three programs follow: Family Advocacy Project (Middlebury, Vermont); Homebuilders (Federal Way, Washington); and Satellite Family Outreach Program (Chicago, Illinois). A final section offers one-page profiles of 34 home-based service programs. References accompany the first two chapters. (JDD)
