This just in from the OJJDP: TARGET rated as "Effective"by ATS Staff on 11/12/14
The review process of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s Model Programs Guide (MPG) is complete, and the Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy (TARGET) was rated as Effective.
If a program is determined to be eligible for inclusion in the MPG, the effectiveness dimensions and the overall scores are used to classify the program into one of three categories that are designed to provide the user with a summary knowledge base of the research supporting that program. A brief description of the three categories follows:
Effective: Programs have strong evidence to indicate they achieve their intended outcomes when implemented with fidelity.
Promising: Programs have some evidence to indicate they achieve their intended outcomes.
No Effects: Programs have strong evidence indicating that they had no effects or had harmful effects when implemented with fidelity.
