Subject:Re: Research on Effective Programs for Working with Adolescents in Child Welfare

Look carefully at the evidence-base for AF-CBT. The evidence is pretty limited, constrained by small sample sizes, and very small or non-existent control groups; early studies were on individual components delivered separately, later studies were on them combined. Definitely some promising findings for AF-CBT but the program could benefit from more rigorous studies and stronger evidence of effectiveness. Evidence base for AF-CBT is not nearly as strong as it is for TF-CBT.

Specifically, I am interested in references and research related to approaches with adolescents that have demonstrated effectiveness in one or more of the following: admission prevention; preventing recurrence of maltreatment; improving parenting capacity/parenting self-efficacy; improving family functioning and/or promoting youth resiliency. I am particularly interested in models that may be considered trauma-informed.  Many thanks,  Kate Schumaker  Catholic Children's Aid Society of Toronto -- ------------------ Stephanie A.
