Abstract:

This thesis outlines two issues that follow the current state of evidence in youth care. The first issue deals with the stringent health care budgets and the municipalities being responsible for the reimbursement of interventions in youth care from January 2015 onwards. In light of these recent developments, it could help municipalities if both costs and effects of an intervention are clear and when interventions are compared on both outcomes. Therefore, this thesis addresses the issue of whether cost-effectiveness research in the field of youth care is feasible. The second issue is raised by using available, non-randomized, data in investigating the effectiveness of interventions in youth care practice. In such designs, statistical methods can help to control for initial, non-random, differences between adolescents assigned to different treatment groups. The propensity score method is such a method, and it is increasingly being used in psychological research. In this thesis, this method is applied to everyday practice data in youth care.
