Arizona’s Children’s System of Care Practice Review Fiscal Year 2013 Statewide Report (2014)
Research has identified that outcome evaluation is key to achieving and sustaining transformation initiatives in Systems of Care (Hodges, Hernandez, Nesman, & Lipien, 2002). The System of Care Practice Review (SOCPR) was implemented in FY2009?2010 as the Arizona Department of Health Services/Division of Behavioral Health Services (ADHS/DBHS) practice review method of choice in Arizona. It was developed at the University of South Florida (USF) by Dr. Mario Hernandez, Ph.D. Research has demonstrated high inter?rater reliability in the use of the tool, which is based on face to face interviews with multiple informants as well as file/record reviews (Hernandez et al., 2001). A total of 175 reviews were conducted across Arizona in FY2012?2013.
Profile of Children Placed in Residential Psychiatric Program: Association With Delinquency, Involuntary Mental Health Commitment, and Reentry Into Ca (2014)
This study examined characteristics and profiles of youth receiving services in 1 of Florida’s Medicaid-funded residential mental health treatment programs—State Inpatient Psychiatric Program (SIPP)—between July 1, 2004, and June 30, 2008 (N  1,432). Latent class analysis (LCA) was used to classify youth, and 3 classes were identified: Children With Multiple Needs, Children With No Caregivers, and Abused Children With Substantial Maltreatment History. The results of LCA showed that Children With Multiple Needs experienced the greatest risk for adverse outcomes. Compared with youth in the other 2 classes, these children were more likely to get readmitted to SIPP, more likely to become involved with the juvenile justice system, and more likely to experience involuntary mental health assessments. Implications of the findings are discussed.
Running Away from Foster Care: What Do We Know and What Do We Do? (2014)
Running away is a serious problem behavior that occurs frequently among youth in the foster care system. Given the severity of the problem, it is important to understand the phenomenon and seek solutions. The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature to determine what is known about youth running away from foster care placements and to identify strategies that have been implemented to reduce the magnitude of the problem.
Behavioral Management for Children and Adolescents: Assessing the Evidence (2014)
Behavioral management services for children and adolescents are important components of the mental health service system. Behavioral management is a direct service designed to help develop or maintain prosocial behaviors in the home, school, or community. This review examined evidence for the effectiveness of family-centered, school-based, and integrated interventions.

A Preliminary Investigation of Risks or Adverse Outcomes of Relationship Seeking on Social Network Sites (2014)
In contrast to younger populations, little attention has been paid to the increase in seniors using Internet-based venues to find relationships and the potential risk for adverse outcomes this poses. This study examined data collected via an online survey from 45 ethnically diverse women aged 50+ “seeking relationships” on MySpace.
Behavioral Skills Training With Teachers: Booster Training for Improved Maintenance (2014)
This study evaluated the effects of a booster training for re-establishing the classroom management proficiencies that teachers had acquired previously, but had declined over a 12-month period.
Behavioral Skills Training With Teachers: Booster Training for Improved Maintenance (2014)
Behavioral skills training (BST) has been employed within many different populations for the reduction of problem behaviors and acquisition of new skills; however, these changes have not always maintained over time. This study evaluated the effects of a booster training for re-establishing the classroom management proficiencies that teachers had acquired previously, but had declined over a 12-month period.
