This webinar for Texas residential intervention providers and state agency leaders is the first of several webinars and other technical assistance activities that BBI is providing for Texas leaders. The first webinar features CEOs, Clinical Director and a youth representative from Youth Development Institute (YDI) a residential program that has made significant steps in transforming their residential programs from using traditional approaches to using practices that correlate to sustained positive outcomes post-discharge from residential for youth and their family members. The presenters share both why they started their transformational journeys and key steps they took to move forward. The presenters were chosen because they both took their first transformational steps without any additional external funding, although you will hear about how YDI used outcome data to convince their funding agency for a small fiscal increase. YDI has been on their journey for more than five years.
