Summary
A description of the process of developing change trajectories for youth in psychotherapy is presented. Data for the Youth Outcome Questionnaire--64 (Y-OQ-64; hereafter, Y-OQ) and Youth Outcome Questionnaire--Self-Report Version (Y-OQ-SR) were gathered from community and commercial mental health agencies in order to track scores of child and adolescent patients undergoing psychotherapy treatment (N = 2715). Scores across all patients were combined into a dataset used in generating expected change trajectories based on severity of symptoms at intake and predictive variables. SAS PROC MIXED was used to model Y-OQ scores over time. Change trajectories of parent- and self-report were compared, identifying differences in elevation and rate of change. Prediction intervals were then created around each estimated mean trajectory to identify patients deviating from the general course of recovery and thus predicted by the warning system to deteriorate in treatment. Self- and parent-report warning systems yielded moderate to high accuracy rates. In addition, a combined system that utilized reports from multiple sources (self-, parent-, and others' report) on the same cases was examined and found to yield the higher sensitivity rates than a system based on any of the previously mentioned respondents individually. Results underscore the feasibility and uitility of developing an empirically-driven early warning system capable of identifying youth patients likely to have a negative therapy outcome
