Research Etc.

The research base supporting the effectiveness of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions* model continues to grow. A five-year NIMH-funded study on CPS at the Virginia Tech Child Study Center was completed in 2015, and numerous papers describing the findings have been published or submitted for publication (see below). Additional research projects examining the effectiveness of the CPS model are ongoing in various settings, including:

 Outpatient:
- University of Technology Sydney (Australia)
- Gothenburg (Sweden) University

Schools:
- University College Jutland, Aalborg, Denmark
- Trillium Lakelands (Ontario, Canada) District School Board (in collaboration with Ryerson University)
- the alternative placement programs in the New York City Public Schools

Juvenile Detention
- State of Maine

Adult Residential:
Center for Urban Community Services, New York City

Adult Inpatient:
- Riverview Psychiatric Center, Augusta, Maine

This page is updated frequently as papers and chapters are submitted and published.
