Youth Risk Assessment in Complex Agency Practice
Groner, Mark R.; Solomon, Jean
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v24 n1-2 p55-76 2007
Advancements in the delivery of community-based services and tight utilization management of high-cost treatment options result in youths with serious behavior problems receiving intervention in lower levels of care than was true ten or fifteen years ago. This shift in where services tend to be delivered necessitates enhancement of risk assessment technology. Systems, structures, tools, and practice guidelines/protocols are available to support contemporary service provision. A model of clinical risk assessment and management is elaborated that integrates multiple sources of data and interdisciplinary teamwork to prevent adverse case outcomes and to maximize potential for community safety. (Contains 5 figures.)
