The parent-therapist program: alternate care for emotionally disturbed children.

Abstract

The development of an alternative to residential treatment centers is described. Healthy nuclear families are recruited and, in groups of five couples each, encouraged to function as extended families. Training in appropriate therapeutic techniques enables them to treat several disturbed children in their own homes. Evaluation of the program indicates that outcome does not differ significantly from that of residential treatment, but that costs are markedly lower.
