Multiple regression with discrete dependent variables by John G Orme( )

19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most social work researchers are familiar with linear regression techniques, which are fairly straightforward to conduct, interpret, and present. However, linear regression is not appropriate for discrete dependent variables, and social work research frequently employs these variables, focusing on outcomes such as placement in foster care or not; level of severity of elder abuse or depression symptoms; or number of reoffenses by juvenile delinquents in the year following adjudication." "This book presents detailed discussions of regression models that are appropriate for a variety of discrete dependent variables. The major challenges of such analyses lie in the non-linear relationships between independent and dependent variables, and particularly in interpreting and presenting findings. Clear language guides the reader briefly through each step of the analysis, using SPSS and result presentation to enhance understanding of the important link function." "The book begins with a brief review of linear regression; next, the authors cover basic binary logistic regression, which provides a foundation for the other techniques. In particular, comprehension of the link function is vital in order to later interpret these methods' results. Though the book assumes a basic understanding of linear regression, reviews and definitions throughout provide useful reminders of important terms and their meaning, and throughout the book the authors provide detailed examples based on their own data."--Jacket
Evaluating practice : guidelines for the accountable professional by Martin Bloom( Book )

36 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluating Practice continues to be the most comprehensive practice evaluation text available. Focusing on single-system designs, Evaluating Practice, 6/e presents clear guidelines on conceptualizing and measuring problems, developing practice-oriented evaluation designs, understanding and analyzing data, and ethical guidelines for practice evaluation. Unsurpassed among human service evaluation texts for bringing clarity to evaluation procedures, Evaluating Practice comes with a free CD-ROM featuring numerous programs, including the innovative SINGWIN program for single-system design data (created by Charles Auerbach, David Schnall, and Heidi Heft Laporte of Yeshiva University), and the CASS and CAAP programs (created by Walter Hudson) for managing cases and scoring scales.--Publisher website

Exploring individual- and court-level predictors of mental health court completion by Jennifer Chadwick Erwin( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Between 10 to 20% of jail inmates have a serious mental illness, while 4% of the general public has a serious mental illness. While incarcerated, inmates are required to have access to mental health care, however, access and quality of services provided is uncertain. During incarceration, adults with mental illnesses are more likely to be found in violation of rules and more likely to experience violence. Additionally, incarceration exacerbates symptoms of mental illness. A key nominal goal of incarceration is to reduce crime. Whether adults with mental illness experience prison in a way that reduces their likelihood of committing future crimes is questionable. Indeed, incarcerated adults with mental illness have especially high recidivism rates and experience more disciplinary issues than those without a mental health diagnosis. Mental health courts (MHCs) are the criminal justice systems response to addressing the revolving door of incarceration experienced by adults with mental illness. This dissertation addresses two questions about MHCs: First, are individual characteristics related to MHC completion?; and second, are court characteristics related to MHC completion rates? To address the first question, a review of court records found that participants with an index offense classified as a crime against another person were just as likely to graduate as those with more minor index offenses, like probation violations. To address the second question, a survey was sent to MHC coordinators nationwide to explore if and how elements of procedural justice influence MHC completion rates. An exploratory factor analysis resulted in a one-factor solution representing "clarity." Ordinal logistic regressions revealed that clarity did not have a statistically significant relationship to either court completion or termination rates. Survey results are also discussed in further detail to provide a snapshot of how MHCs currently operate in the United States. The sample sizes for both studies were small, therefore replication is necessary. Additionally, a more accurate measure of procedural justice is needed because research has demonstrated that participants who perceive higher levels of procedural justice tend to have better court outcomes. Despite the limitations, these studies provide a first next step in MHC research

Social work practice in public defense by Sarah Beck Buchanan( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Little is known about the collaboration between public defense and social work despite the growing implementation of the approach. This dissertation attempts to better understand the implications for social work practice in the public defense setting by 1) reviewing the literature to gain an understanding of social work roles, services, and practice outcomes, 2) examining demographic characteristics and criminal charges incurred by a group of clients in a public defense setting to better understand the population to develop and tailor interventions, and 3) determining the effect of social work services in terms of the number and severity of criminal charges when statistically controlling for pre-existing criminal history and demographic characteristics. Findings indicate that significant gaps exist in understanding the population of public defense clients served by social workers, making it difficult to understand how to tailor services and target interventions. A clear picture emerged of the typical social work client in one public defense setting: male, European American, unmarried, and around 34 years old at the time he began working with a social worker. Also, two distinct subgroups of social work clients were identified: a smaller group comprised of clients who predominantly incurred low-level misdemeanor charges, and a larger group comprised of clients who incurred a high number of low-level misdemeanors, but incurred a higher number of charges, in general, and were more likely to have incurred some felony charges. When comparing clients who did and did not receive social work services, results indicated that the probability of incurring a misdemeanor charge and the number of misdemeanor charges incurred during a two-year time period were lower for clients who received social work services. The probability of incurring a felony charge was lower for the legal group, but there was not a statistically significant difference between groups in the number of felony charges. Implications for practice and future research are discussed
Effectiveness of Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ in enhancing communication in children with autism during ABA therapy by Taylor Eastin Krcek( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Autism is a bio-neurological developmental disorder presenting in early childhood that has a profound effect on an individual's ability to communicate. The iPad® with the Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ app is a multilingual Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) solution designed to assist people who have difficulty speaking or cannot speak at all. This study examines the effectiveness of the Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ app delivered via iPad® to enhance the tacting, manding, and verbal completion repertoires of children with autism. Participants included five children between the ages of three and four years old diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and with low to moderate receptive and expressive language skills. Prior to the study, participants were assessed using the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP), the Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales (CSBS) Joint Attention and Constructive Play subscales, and the Motor Imitation Scale (MIS). Three participants (Group 1) scored low (2, 7, and 8 on the MIS; 1 on the CSBS; and Level 1 on the VB-MAPP), and two participants (Group 2) scored mid-range (18 and 20 on the MIS; 3 on the CSBS; and Level 2 on the VB-MAPP) on assessments of joint attention, constructive play, and motor imitation. A multiple baseline across behaviors design was employed to assess the effectiveness of Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ in enhancing tacting, manding, and verbal completion during Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapeutic sessions for both groups. The Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ intervention was compared to American Sign Language (ASL) at baseline. Results of this study provide insight into the usefulness of Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ in enhancing communication skills for children with ASD and complex communication needs during Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. Specifically, this study provides evidence that using Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ with some children with ASD and complex communication needs who are in early preverbal stages may be useful in enhancing tacting, manding, and verbal completion skills during ABA therapy, and using Proloquo2GoT̳M̳ with children who are in later preverbal stages may be useful as a more accessible form of communication in addition to ASL
