Research-Informed Practices to Treat Children and Strengthen Families

Each year, billions of dollars are spent responding to the legal, correctional, educational, and psychological needs of disruptive youth. Nationwide, oppositional or aggressive behaviors are account for the majority of youth mental health referrals. Evidence suggests that despite recent advancements in the development of evidence-based child mental health service models addressing youth conduct difficulties, engaging children and their families in care and achieving positive mental health outcomes remains a serious challenge in “real world” outpatient clinics. One promising innovation, referred to as the 4R’s and 2S’s treatment framework, is a structured curriculum based approach that systematically incorporates the critical findings from the research literature on effective treatment of conduct difficulties in children. The 4R’s refers to the importance of focusing treatment on strengthening family Roles, Responsibilities, Respectful Communication and Relationships. The 2 S’s emphasizes the importance of directly addressing family Stress and promoting Social Support. Adult caregivers and children work together on these areas via a multiple family group (MFG) format. The MFG consists of a 16-week series of group meetings with 6–8 families present in each group. The service delivery model was developed in collaboration with family members to maximize relevance and engagement.
