Synopsis: This study describes outcomes for 61 youth residing in a large, Midwestern, residential care facility who had been receiving adjunctive therapeutic services for behavioral and emotional problems. The results from behavioral indices as well as symptom checklists completed by youth, clinicians, and supervisors, of the study suggest that youth in therapy improved rather rapidly over the course of treatment. However, improvement was moderated by informant source and outcome measures. Therapeutic alliance was only modestly associated with outcome. Results are discussed in regards to effective treatment for youth in residential care as well as the broader conceptualization of therapeutic alliance.
