Description

Summary

The purpose of this research is to adapt and evaluate the efficacy of an existing family based intervention to be delivered via telehealth to child welfare-involved (CWI) youth and their caregiver of origin.

Official Title

Leveraging Technology to Improve Family Relationships for Adolescents in Out-of-Home Placement

Details

The goal of this study is to adapt and evaluate the efficacy of an existing empirically supported, family-based affect management intervention to be delivered via telehealth. There are two versions of this intervention: 1) a dyadic version to be delivered to CWI youth and their caregiver of origin, and 2) a caregiver-only version to be delivered to any caregiver (including kinship caregivers) of a CWI youth. The study involves iteratively adapting the intervention with feedback from youth and caregiver participants and stakeholder partners, as well as evaluating the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effectiveness of the intervention.
