IICAPS Data Lab

Post-BAs will analyze and report on data from all 19 Connecticut sites delivering Intensive In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS). IICAPS was developed at the Child Study Center for children and adolescents with severe psychiatric disturbances and their families to prevent initial or repeated psychiatric hospitalization and improve client functioning at home, in school and in the community. Data from more than 2200 closed cases served by these sites annually is entered into a web based system, and analyzed and reported to the Connecticut Behavioral Health Partnership and the Department of Child and Families by IICAPS Services.  

The scientific and scholarly products resulting from this data may include, but need not be limited to, presentations, journal manuscripts, book chapters, undergraduate and graduate student projects, as well as faculty, trainee and student grants. Clinical experience is offered to provide a context for understanding the aims of the intervention and the purposes for which the data can be used.
