Bruns, Zabel & Matarese Published in Evaluation & Program Planning

Michelle Zabel, MSS, Assistant Dean and Director of The Institute, Marlene Matarese, PhD, Deputy Director of The Institute, and colleagues from the University of Washington Eric J. Bruns, Jonathan R. Olsen, and Taylor Berntson have a new paper published in Evaluation and Program Planning. The article, which received an Editor's Choice award, is entitled Evaluation of a systems-level technical assistance program to support youth with complex behavioral health needs. The research published here evaluates efforts of The National Technical Assistance Network for Children’s Behavioral Health (TA Network) led by The Institute for Innovation and Implementation. Participants reported a variety of systems-level outcomes associated with TA Network support. These findings underscore the importance of structuring TA systems to tailor support to fit with recipients’ needs, build positive, proactive relationships, and offer services of sufficient dosage.
