Highly Selective Registry of Programs Taps Teaching-Family Model as Evidence-based

As of December 5, 2016, the Teaching-Family Model, the model of care used by The Children’s Home of Cincinnati, is officially recognized as a promising evidence-based practice for the treatment of “Non-specific Mental Health Disorders and Symptoms.” The recent publication of results from a National Institute of Mental Health-funded research study prompted Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) to include the model of care to be accredited for use.

“The Teaching Family Model is a strong organizational development approach that supports our work in a way no other model does,” said John Banchy, President and CEO of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati. “Our use of The Teaching Family Model has strengthened our workforce, the agency, and the community.”

The study published in the Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders found the Teaching-Family Model to “produce significantly better outcomes” for youth post-discharge. “Short-term gains are relatively common, but for developing youth, shifts in long-term trajectories form the springboard for improved development, socialization, functioning and flourishing,” write the study authors.

Teaching-Family Model programs at The Children’s Home of Cincinnati provide this springboard for young people ages 3-18.
The Teaching-Family Model has been recognized as a promising evidence-based practice since 2008 by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC), a similar and oft-cited registry of evidence-based programs. The American Psychological Association has recognized the Model as an evidence-based practice since 2003, prior to the creation of NREPP or CEBC.
