Director Corsi and Dr. Nelson will discuss research relating the length of stay in residential care to positive outcomes for youth who are placed in residential treatment centers (RTCs).  Their presentation will cover best practices in residential care including high levels of family participation and a strong focus upon discharge planning with an emphasis on community supports.
