Synopsis: This study presents findings from a large sample investigation into the relationship between medication usage by children with serious emotional disturbance and their six-month outcomes after entering system-of-care services. The results from the investigation indicate that child and family six-month outcomes differ as a function of medication status. In addition and in a smaller sample, it appears that medication usage at six-months into services is predicted as much if not more by non-clinical characteristics of children (e.g., race/ethnicity, referral source) than by clinical characteristics (e.g., functioning). The implication of these findings will be discussed.
