A study involving 94 caregivers investigated client characteristics and service use measures predicting successful completion of Child and Family Tennessee's replication of Family Connections. Findings indicate families served for 3 months or more were more likely to complete services than families served for 9 months. In addition, families receiving more comprehensive direct services were more likely to complete the program. 3 tables and 26 references.
