Histogram & Narrative Summary SWK5015 Advanced Statistical Research & Program Evaluation July 2023
Histogram imported from JASP Descriptive Statistics Age of Child Accessing Services Valid 90 Missing 0 Mean 10.256 Std. Deviation 3.367 Minimum 5.000 Maximum 18.000 Age of Child Accessing Services Trends in Services According to the data represented in the histogram above, the trends I see include; An increase in mental health services between the ages 4 to 10-years-old.
A Decrease in mental health services between the age on 10-12, with a drastic decline at age 12, and a consistent decrease in services between ages 12 to 18-years-old. Trends Affects on Planning These trends indicate two major considerations for planning. A need for providers to be adequately trained in early childhood development, to meet the needs of our largest client base. Increase age-appropriate programming for older youth, ages 12 to 18-years-old. By increasing age-appropriate programming the agency could reintroduce mental health services to older youth, in a more effective manner. For example, older youth may prefer a group setting over one-on-one services. Cruwys et. al (2019) are currently examining the effectiveness of group therapy over CBT, in a randomized controlled trial. The belief behind this research is that adolescents in the psychosocial stage of identity versus confusion (ages 12 to 18-years-old), will respond more positively in a group setting. Next steps for representation To gain a clearer understanding of all age groups at the agency I would recommend breaking the age groups down by developmental stage groups as followed: Initiative vs. Guilt (Ages 3 to 5-years-old) Industry vs. Inferiority (Ages 6 to 11-years-old) Identity vs. Confusion (Ages 12 to 18-years-old) (Knight, 2017)
