|Document Title:||Understanding the Impacts of Natural Disasters on Children.|
|Personal Author:||Lai, Betty S.,La Greca, Annette.|
|Abstract:||Natural disasters present a significant and growing threat to the well-being of children. Every year, 175 million children globally are expected to be affected by natural disasters, including floods, cyclones, droughts, heatwaves, severe storms, and earthquakes. Children are particularly vulnerable during natural disasters and experience increased problems regarding their physical health, mental health, and learning after exposure. Prevention and mitigation policies can reduce children’s risk by helping communities better prepare for and respond to disasters. Increasing school safety, increasing the availability of evidence-based recovery programs, and targeting services to children at highest risk for problems are needed to mitigate the impact...more|

|Document Title:||Interventions for Youth Aging out of Foster Care: A State of the Science Review.|
|Personal Author:||Greeson, Johanna K.P.,Garcia, Antonio R.,Tan, Fei.,Chacon, Alexi.,Ortiz, Andrew J.|

These programs aim to improve wellbeing outcomes related to education, employment, housing, health/mental health, and relationships. Using a scoping review framework, we sought to take stock of the state of the science of the programs and interventions (PIs) currently available...more|

|Document Title:||Identifying Gaps and Using Evidence-Based Practices to Serve the Behavioral Health Treatment Needs of Medicaid-Insured Children.|
|Personal Author:||Phillippi, Stephen.,Beiter, Kaylin.,Thomas, Casey.,Vos, Saskia.|
|Abstract:||The goal of this study was to examine gaps in Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) implementation among behavioral health providers of Medicaid-insured youth. Providers (N = 222) representing 146 unique behavioral health programs were surveyed about EBPs implementation both directly and indirectly. Indirect measures included program characteristics common to EBPs. Frequency, heat mapping, bivariate, and multivariate analyses were performed. Statistical tests included T-tests, analysis of variance, and the Pearson correlation. Self-reported EBPs use was 66.2%, while indirect measures indicated lower actual EBP use (40%). Findings indicate EBPs are not effectively implemented by all behavioral health providers treating Medicaid-insured youth. Further research is needed...more|
