The Impact of Mind Matters: Preliminary Evidence of Effectiveness in a Community-Based Sample
Becky Antle, Ph.D., Professor of Social Work and esteemed University Scholar at the University of Louisville, won The Dibble Institute’s national competition to evaluate Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience in 2019. As a result, Dr. Antle and her colleagues have conducted a randomized controlled trial to examine the impact of Mind Matters on a host of outcomes related to trauma symptoms, emotional regulation, coping and resiliency, and interpersonal skills for at-risk youth in a community-based sample. Youth in the study reported high levels of childhood trauma and related trauma symptoms upon entry into the program. Following provision of this evidence-informed program by trained providers within community-based organizations, youth reported a reduction in trauma symptoms and improvement in resiliency despite a number of complicating risk factors and across multiple demographic groups.
Join the researchers on this project as they discuss their most recent findings from the pilot of Mind Matters with high-needs youth in the Louisville community. They will focus on youth-related outcomes, lessons learned, and tips for implementing the Mind Matters curriculum in a variety of settings with at-risk youth.
Specifically, webinar attendees will learn:
- How Mind Matters is being implemented in community partnership for at-risk youth with fidelity
- How Mind Matters is being evaluated using rigorous process and outcomes evaluation methods
- How Mind Matters is making a difference in the lives of youth served
- How to use effective implementation and facilitation skills to provide Mind Matters to youth across a variety of settings to achieve positive outcomes
Presenter: Becky Antle, Ph.D., MSSW, MFTA, Professor and University Scholar, Director Center for Family and Community Well-Being, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY.
