Subject:Re: Integrated Family Services Teams

Heather, I am not sure how much information you can obtain from the system, but years ago I worked in Montgomery County Maryland, and I believe they have such a model. The Child Welfare Services Director is in charge of the maltreatment Screening Unit, Foster Care, Adoption, Kinship Care, and so on. I am unsure of whether these would meet your definition of integrated family service teams or be viewed as separate programs. Here is a 2006 annual report that describes the integrative approach of their system. http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/content/hhs/childwelfare/2006_cws_annual_report.pdf I hope this is helpful.

Similar format, similar scales, and it has the total/internalizing/externalizing higher-order scales that you are seeking. Decent national population norms by age group and gender. Teacher report, parent report and self report versions. One advantage of the BASC is that the child self report paper-and-pencil version goes down to age 8, and there is a child interview version for ages 6-7. When you get down to age seven and under, the problems with self report measures can get pretty bad, not to mention the reading issue. > > -----Original Message----- > From: RF Barns [mailto:rebecca.barns@bristol.ac.uk ] > Sent: Wednesday, April 08, 2009 4:33 AM > Subject: measures/references > > Dear All > > I am working on my PhD and am looking at different measures for child > adjustment (specifically focusing on externalising/internalising).
