    7. Webinar #1Introduction to Effective Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation: An Overview of Study Findings Roxane K. Kaufmann, M.A. Frances B. Duran, M.P.P. Deborah F. Perry, Ph.D. Georgetown University Center for Child & Human Development April 28,2010 7

    8. Today’s Webinar • Describe GUCCHD’s work in children’s mental health and the context of the study • Highlight national data on the status of ECMHC • Showcase key study findings, including an emerging model for effective consultation programs • Describe evaluation in the context of study sites • Discuss next steps for the field • Highlight resources for further guidance 8

    9. Setting the Context • GUCCHD’s work in ECMH • Increased knowledge about child development and increased concerns about young children’s behavior • Lessons from the Field • 1999 Roundtable supported by SAMHSA • Expanding use of ECMHC and research • Mailman Family Foundation support 9

    10. Indirect mental health intervention for infants, toddlers and preschoolers Focused on young children in ECE settings and their caregivers Collaboration between a professional consultant with mental health expertise and consultees What is Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation? 10

    11. Types of ECMHC • Child/family-centered consultation: Focuses on a particular child with challenging behavior and/or the family of that child • Programmatic consultation: Focuses on a general program or classroom issue that impacts the mental health of staff, children and/or families Cohen & Kaufmann, 2000 11

    12. What are the Goals of ECMHC? • Reduce the impact of mental health problems among young children in ECE settings • Build the capacity of ECE staff, programs, and families to promote young children’s healthy social/emotional development and address challenging or troubling behaviors 12

    13. Setting the Context (cont’d) • Growing body of research on ECMHC, but key questions remained… • What are the essential components of effective mental health consultation? • What are the skills, competencies, and credentials of effective consultants? • What are the training, supervision, and support needs of consultants? • What level of intervention intensity is needed to produce good outcomes? • Which outcomes should be targeted and how should they be measured? 13

    14. The What Works? Study • What Works? study (2009) • Targeted focus on exploring the key components of effective consultation programs • Site visits to 6 programs with positive outcomes • Participation from those delivering and receiving ECMHC services • National Scan 14

    15. Study Sites • Child Care Expulsion Prevention (MI) • Early Childhood Consultation Partnership (CT) • Early Intervention Program/Instituto Familiar de la Raza (San Francisco, CA) • Early Intervention Project (Baltimore, MD) • Kid Connects (Boulder, CO) • Together for Kids (Central Massachusetts) 15

    16. ECMHC: The National Picture • National Scan • Brief online survey • Sent to all states’ and territories’ Children’s Mental Health Directors and ECCS Coordinators • 35 states/territories responded 16

    17. National Scan Highlights • Prevalence of ECMHC • 29 states indicated availability of ECMHC; 21 with statewide efforts • Key factors that supported ECMHC implementation: funding, research/data, leadership, state/community concerns, and/or early childhood initiatives • Top Funding Sources • State General Funds, Child Care Development Funds, Mental Health, Private Funds • Evaluation • Most (61%) have a coordinated statewide effort 17

    18. National Scan Highlights (cont’d) • Consultant Qualifications • Few have state-level requirements • Common Challenges • Lack of funding, providers and/or expertise • ECMH not valued/included in systems development efforts • Lessons Learned • Collaboration and cross-agency cooperation is critical • Effective ECMHC attends to promotion, prevention & intervention • A highly trained and supported consultant workforce is crucial to effective ECMHC 18

    19. Question Review and Response 19

    29. Question Review and Response 29

    30. Expanding the Evidence Base • Two reviews of the best available evidence • Staff & Program Level Outcomes • Child Behavioral Outcomes • Increasing rigor in state level evaluations underway • Use of valid and reliable tools • Well articulated theory of change 33

    31. Evaluation • Helps answer critical questions about your program: • What is your program doing? • What effects are you having on whom? • What parts work well? • What parts need improvement? • Helps promote sustainability • Continuous Quality Improvement 32

    32. Evaluation Efforts in Study Sites • All selected sites had positive outcomes • All programs have rigorous evaluations underway • Mixed methods being used: quantitative and qualitative • Variety of formative and summative outcomes • Comprehensive table of tools (p. 91-93) 30

    33. Measuring Impact at Multiple Levels MD Evaluation: Logic Model 31

    34. Moving Toward Fidelity • Begin with essential features: importance of clear model • Challenge of not being a manualized intervention • Approach similar to the National Wraparound Fidelity process • Key principles, then core practices • The NEST and modified Delphi process 34
