Abstract

This article presents findings on clinical gains for youth in psychiatric residential treatment facilities (PRTF) through the use of state-wide performance management information. Data was collected on 1,258 youth admitted to one of seventeen PRTF facilities in a single, mid-western state. Results suggest that youth made positive clinical changes during treatment. Furthermore, results indicate that parent and youth hopefulness and satisfaction were significant predictors of positive clinical changes in problem severity and youth functioning. These findings contribute to current literature on PRTF effectiveness in achieving positive youth outcomes and the role of consumer attitudinal factors in treatment.
