Profile of Children Placed in Out-of-Home Care: Association with Permanency Outcomes (2013)
The goals of this study were to explore characteristics and profiles of children who received out-of-home care services and to examine the relationship between their profiles and permanency outcomes.
Training Teachers to Conduct Trial-Based Functional Analyses (2013)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether teachers trained via an in-service training would be able to conduct trial-based functional assessments with high procedural integrity.
Recent Changes in the Child Welfare System: One State's Experience (2013)
This article compares national data on children entering out-of-home care and the length of stay with data from Florida over a 7-year period (2005 –2011).
Training Teachers to Conduct Trial-Based Functional Analyses (2013)
The trial-based functional analysis (FA) is a promising approach to identification of behavioral function and is especially suited for use in educational settings. The purpose of this study was to determine whether teachers trained via an in-service training would be able to conduct trial-based FAs with high procedural integrity.
Using a Modified Pyramidal Training Model to Teach Special Education Teachers to Conduct Trial-Based Functional Analyses (2013)
Functional behavioral assessments are commonly used in school settings to assess and develop interventions for problem behavior. The trial-based functional analysis is an approach that teachers can use in their classrooms to identify the function of problem behavior. The current study evaluates the effectiveness of a modified pyramidal training procedure in which special education program coordinators were taught to conduct trial-based functional analyses and then provided support to special education teachers who were taught to conduct trial-based functional analyses and to calculate, graph, and analyze data.

Scaling Up School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports: Experiences of Seven States With Documented Success (2013)
This article provides a descriptive summary of the experience from seven states with a history of implementing and scaling School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) over the past decade.
Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships in State Child Welfare Systems: Results of a Multi-State Strategic Planning Process (2013)
Dramatic growth in health and human service contracting over the past two decades has increased the need for managerial competency in the development and sustainment of effective cross-sector partnerships. Although the quality of relations between partnering agencies can affect client outcomes, few macro-level interventions for strengthening cross-sector partnerships have been described or tested in the literature. This article describes a facilitated, strategic planning process implemented in five different states and presents pre-post test results of its effect on different factors known to affect partnership success. Implications for child welfare administrative practice and research are discussed.
Recent Changes in the Child Welfare System: One State’s Experience (2013)
Nationwide over the past 5 years there has been a substantial reduction in the number of children involved with the child welfare system entering out-of-home care as well as a reduction in the lengths of stay among those who do enter the system. This article compares national data on children entering out-of-home care and the length of stay with data from Florida over a 7-year period (2005–2011). Findings are shared on the strategies and services that stakeholders in one state reported as contributing to preventing out-of-home placements and reducing lengths of stay in residential settings. Federal policies such as IV-E Waivers that support this reduction also are discussed. The article concludes with policy and research recommendations regarding how to sustain this reduction while ensuring that child safety and well-being are preserved.
