Clay Yeager, a senior consultant for the Washington-based Evidence-Based Associates.
Yeager, who is based in York, Pa., and had served as the director of Pennsylvania's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention from 1997 to 2002, said he advocates randomized, controlled trials as the gold standard for juvenile justice programs.
"If a standard is good enough for us to utilize when prescribing medication, why should we have a lower standard for programs addressing problems in kids and families and communities? he said.
Not surprisingly, Yeager said he's wary of the half-dozen registries besides Blueprints. Their EBP designations, he said, have been diluted to the point that they have "lost their meaning and value" in assessing the potential effectiveness of programs.
"It's created a great deal of confusion among the consumers out there - and by that I mean public policy officials, practitioners, not being able to discern clearly the differences among the standards that qualify each of these 450-plus programs as meeting the test for being evidence-based," Yeager told JJIE.
"There have been so many iterations and variations on this singular theme of being evidence-based, and it's minimized the value of what that term was originally intended to mean," Yeager said. "It's a disservice to the kids, to the families, to the taxpayers ... to not have more clarity about what constitutes evidence-based programs, what constitutes the definition of the evidence-based."
Evidence-Based Associates has helped jurisdictions implement and manage MST and other Blueprints model programs, including Functional Family Therapy, which involves intensive work with troubled youths and their families.
Yeager notes the U.S. spends $6 billion to $7 billion a year on locking kids up, an average of $88,000 per youth per year, despite a dearth of evidence it's effective.
