Synopsis: This study compares outcomes for youth who entered an intensive case management program having already experienced a negative event (e.g., arrests, placements, hospitalizations) with the outcomes of youth who had not yet experienced the event but were considered Òat-risk.Ó This less-impaired group does not fit a typical pre-post design because there were no ÒpreÓ events. Outcomes for these less-impaired youth indicated that a disproportionate number deteriorated during or after discharge from treatment. A typical pre-post design would have missed this group of seemingly better-functioning youth. Discussion addresses the conditions under which pre-post design are inappropriate and may obscure important outcomes.
