Direct care staff in Residential Treatment Centers (RTC) are the primary delivery agent of milieu therapy for Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED) youth, spending time with the children for most of their waking hours. The current body of research suggests that direct care staff in RTC are an important, but under-measured element of the RTC system of care. The Staff Perception and Assessment of Residential Treatment of Adolescents and Children in the United States (SPARTAC-US) is a quantitative survey designed to assess staff beliefs about their role in the RTC model of care with SED youth. Questions are addressed about efficacy of treatment, beliefs about etiology of mental illness, compassion satisfaction, interpersonal style, and workplace satisfaction. It is hoped that factors that emerge from the survey will validate the hypothesis that there are distinct constructs related to residential staff interacting with SED adolescents and children.
