Youth with disruptive behavior problems (DBPs) represent the majority of youth served in usual care (UC) psychotherapy, and are at high risk for maladaptive outcomes. Little is known about UC psychotherapeutic strategies utilized with this population. Researchers and clinicians suggest that case management (CM) is a major activity occurring in usual care. CM includes coordinating care with service providers and individuals, including schools, psychiatrists, and community-based services. This study assesses the prevalence and predictors of clinician use of CM in usual care. Results from this study suggest that CM is frequently used in UC psychotherapy with youth with DBPs. The extent of use of CM in UC may have implications for implementation of evidence-based practices in usual care psychotherapy.
