Good luck with your work. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Joshua P Mersky" > To: child-maltreatment-research-L@cornell.edu Sent: Sunday, January 16, 2011 8:09:24 PM Subject: Variation in effectiveness of child welfare services by age of child Greetings, It has been speculated in several recent publications that adolescents are less likely than their younger counterparts to receive appropriate/effective treatment responses from the child welfare system. Some argue that there are simply fewer treatment programs for adolescent victims than child victims. However, I have not been able to track down empirical data that bear on these hypotheses. I am aware that rates of mental health service utilization are actually higher among adolescents than younger children. But, is there any evidence to suggest that the quality or effectiveness of services varies among age groups in a predictable way? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
