Synopsis: This study describes the development and initial psychometrics of a staff observation instrument for assessing the key components of a youth residential program implementing an adaptation of the Teaching Family Model. Data from 113 teaching –couples were collected. Overall, the analyses (item-level descriptives, factor analysis, cluster analysis, and changes over time) provide preliminary support for the utility and underlying psychometrics of an observation instrument to assess staff implementation of a multi-faceted residential intervention.
