Changing populations in the public sector : responding to the needs of Texas Youth.
A shift in dollars from state facilities to community mental health centers and adherence to the principles of consumer choice, family preservation, empowerment of consumers and communities, and accessiblity lead to a redesign of services at Waco Center for Youth, Waco, Texas.
Survey data from Community Resource Collaborative Groups identified the need for comprehensive residential treatment services for sexually abused, sexually aggressive, and sexual offender youth.
A dual-track treatment program resulted, one for survivors of sexual abuse building on safety, trust, support, education, and skill-building, and one for offenders focusing on confrontation, challenging cognitive distortions, education, self-responsibility, and relapse prevention.
Evaluation of program outcomes is ongoing.
