  Annotation: This study examined the Relational Re-enactment Systems Approach to Treatment model.
Abstract: The Relational Re-enactment Systems Approach to Treatment model is a coherent and comprehensive approach to residential treatment that increases family involvement through system-wide clinical consultation. The therapeutic alliance with youth and their families is emphasized as the key to creating client-centered goals for discharge to a less restrictive environment. The current study examined outcomes from 4 years of the model's implementation. Results indicated a significant increase in the proportion of youth discharged to a family home. Additionally, the proportion of discharges that were the result of youth running away from treatment was reduced by half. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
