Implementing evidence-based practices is becoming increasingly important within the behavioral health field. Many organizations currently struggle to implement these practices, which enable them to track long-term client outcomes and determine the effectiveness of services.
This webinar provides a case study of Youth Villages’ approach to meeting this challenge. Youth Villages, one of the leading providers of services to emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families, have implemented a ‘three-legged stool' model for outcomes improvement. This model focuses on program model practices and adherence, performance improvement, and outcome evaluation systems, and has proven successful in improving the outcomes of the individuals they serve. Join this webinar for lessons you can apply at your own organization.
The free evidence-based practices webinar will be hosted by Hughes Johnson, director of performance improvement at Youth Villages, and Fran Loshin-Turso, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Defran Systems, Inc.
Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully. They help more than 18,000 children and families each year from more than 20 states and Washington, D.C. Their Evidentiary Family Restoration™ approach involves intensive work with the child and family, a focus on measuring outcomes, keeping children in the community whenever safely possible, and providing accountability to families and funders. The EFR approach produces lasting success for children with success rates twice that of traditional services at one-third the cost of traditional care.
