Synopsis: The Transition-Learning-Change (TLC) program incorporates many systems of care principles. In the past 2 years, the 9-bed residence with a 6-county catchment area has served 121 clients, and 56 additional clients received only in-home support (Intensive Family Services, IFS). Individualized treatment may include Residence, IFS, Day Treatment, specialized assessments, family and individual therapy, and community-based summer programming. As needed, interventions are drawn from milieu therapy, Solution-Focused and Narrative approaches, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy. Innovations include Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) and the integration of the IFS and residential programs. Outcome measures indicate reduction in symptoms (Brief Child and Family Phone Interview) and improved functioning (Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale). Recent developments in program evaluation include assessment scales for specific aspects of the program and a qualitative study involving an external researcher interviewing parents about their sense of being included as a significant member of the treatment team.
