The current status of research in residential treatment


Journal Article

Recent studies conducted in residential or hospital settings were reviewed. Although major obstacles continue to impede the research endeavor in residential treatment, several areas of notable progress are evident. Developmental psychopathology research conducted in residential treatment sellings is confirming or modifying conclusions based on research with non-referred samples of young people. Outcome studies of single samples have demonstrated increasing reliance upon standardized measures and have clarified the components of, and confirmed the importance of, the post-discharge environment. Comparative outcome studies have served to emphasize the importance of defining the treatment program in residential care. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
