Clemens, Elysia V.; Welfare, Laura E.; Williams, Amy M.
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v27 n4 p243-263 2010
Psychiatric reasons are among the most common causes of hospitalization for adolescents. A Consensual Qualitative Research approach was used to explore mental health professionals' perceptions of the needs of adolescents as they transition from psychiatric hospital to school. Academic, social, and emotional domains emerged as important areas of attention prior to and during the psychiatric hospital to school transition. Implications from interviews with 14 mental health professionals working in inpatient, outpatient, and school settings are reported. (Contains 1 table.)
