A pilot study aiming to document and evaluate the implementation of ARC in group homes and residential care units has been underway since the fall of 2014.  In collaboration with five partner agencies, ARC has been adapted for units serving children 3 to 8 years old, and boys aged 12-14; adaptations for boys’ and girls’ adolescent units are currently underway.  An initial two-day training session is delivered by the McGill team, followed by a minimum of six monthly group clinical integration meetings designed to support the staff’s concrete application of the framework and troubleshoot any barriers they encounter in applying it.  The research component of the project aims to (1) document the implementation process, (2) get a snapshot of the workers’ perception of the kinds of challenges and strengths presented by the children in each of the units, (3) observe any changes in the workers beliefs, interventions and sense of efficacy over a six month period, and (4) document any changes in the use of restraints in each unit over the same time period.
