The goal of this study is to examine factors (i.e., child demographics, maltreatment history, maltreatment severity, placement stability, diagnoses) on utilization of the most costly and intense services among children placed in out-of-home care.
Use findings from the project to develop recommendations for policy development and service provision, which will be disseminated through technical reports, manuscripts for publication, and conference presentations.
Children will stay in community-based settings and have the need for less intensive treatment services and settings.
