Office presents posters at annual research conference
Members of the Office of Behavioral Research and Evaluation (OBRE) in the College of Education recently presented two posters at the 22nd annual Research Conference on Systems of Care held recently in Tampa, Fla. The conference featured research from various Systems of Care (programs designed to help children with mental health issues) that are funded through the Center for Mental Health Services, a division of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). OBRE’s two posters focused on evaluations of (1) cultural competence among children's service providers, and (2) the integrity of services provided to children with severe emotional disturbances. OBRE contributors to the posters included Christy Brinkley, Valencia Cash, Dr. Latoya Pierce, Dr. David Saarnio, and Dr. Josie Welsh. April Coleman, a recent graduate of ASU’s psychology program, also contributed, along with external collaborators Walter Darnell from Counseling Services of East Arkansas and Pam Marshall of the Arkansas Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health. Both posters are available for viewing on OBRE’s website. OBRE serves as the evaluation team for Arkansas’ System of Care, ACTION for Kids.
