Description:
This study is concerned with evaluating the effectiveness of the clinical service provided by a Child and Family Centre in the urban Dublin area. Specifically, it evaluates the impact of services on both children receiving treatment at the centre, and their mothers. Effectiveness is measured along a number of dimensions. These include the adjustment of children themselves, and the mental health and life quality of their mothers. The attitudes of the moUiers, and satisfaction towards tlie clinic's services are also examined. The main objective of the study was to go beyond the traditional narrow indices of service effectiveness (e.g. attrition rates) to provide a comprehensive examination of the clinic services.
