Abstract

The importance of outcome research in the field of children's mental health treatment has increased in recent years because of enhanced consumer awareness, a decrease in available resources, and payers' demand for accountability. The present study evaluated the treatment program of a child psychiatric unit in a public university hospital in the southeastern United States. The research used a single-group, pre- and post-test design and the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) as the outcome measure. Children receiving inpatient psychiatric treatment demonstrated statistically significant improvements in CBCL scores. The strengths and limitations of this study are discussed.
