Pathways to residential care: latent class and confirmatory analyses of adolescents’ adverse placement event histories

Authors:
ZINN Andrew, HAVLICEK Judy
Journal article citation:
Social Service Review, 88(3), 2014, pp.367-406.
Publisher:
University of Chicago Press

This study aims to develop greater understanding of the preplacement experiences of adolescents who enter residential care through the child welfare system by identifying a discrete set of modal placement histories as indicated by the occurrence of one or more adverse placement events. To this end, the authors analyse the placement experiences of a sample of 2,542 adolescents entering residential care under the auspices of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (IDCFS) using repeated-measures latent class analysis (RMLCA). The authors identify six distinct adverse placement event pathways, differentiated by a combination of prevailing event type and the timing of adverse event onset. The authors find that these pathways are associated with analogous residential care discharge outcomes, that is, discharges that mirror a pathway’s prevailing event type. Moreover, they find that the likelihood of experiencing an analogous discharge is higher for adolescents experiencing pathways characterised by longer persistence than it is for adolescents experiencing pathways characterised by later onset or shorter persistence.
