Abstract

The present study examines a wide range of demographic, family, community, educational, and other risk and problem characteristics of Illinois children and adolescents admitted to programs designed to prevent the need for residential placements. These programs were designed to deliver education and treatment in a number of ways while emphasizing family-centered, multiagency, and community-based principles of care. The children and adolescents in these programs manifested a wide range of serious emotional and behavioral problems and had extensive histories of treatment of various kinds. Many had experienced numerous unfortunate life stressors that probably will complicate treatment. Some results of the present study are similar to those of other surveys of children with emotional and behavioral disorders, whereas other results may be unique. Implications of key results are noted.
