A key tool that is available to child welfare agencies is the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), which has been used for several years in mental health settings. This book provides many examples of how the CBCL may be used in practice and research, including chapters that highlight different statistical techniques for analyzing data and presenting results. The various chapters discuss the implications of using the CBCL for practice, policy, and administration of child welfare programs. Chapters include: (1) Introduction (N. S. Le Prohn, E. R. Lamont, P. J. Pecora, and K. M. Wetherbee); (2) Using the Child Behavior Checklist 4-18, Teacher's Report Form, Youth Self-Report, and Related Measures in Child and Family Services (T. M. Achenbach, P. J. Pecora, and G. Armsden); (3) The Clinical Status of Children in State Custody (C. A. Heflinger and C. G. Simpkins); (4) Demographic Differences in Children's Residential Treatment Progress (W. A. Shennum, D. C. Moreno, and J. C.

Zinn); (6) Follow-Up of Youth Returned to Home after Treatment in Residential Care (D. B.
