Michael Macsenaere, Corinna Pummer-Pilaj

Abstract


EVAS is the largest study in Germany that evaluates the structures, processes, and results of residential care. The results show a success rate of over 60% and a cost-benefit ratio of 3:1. The study provides a number of indications as to what works; for example, the willingness to cooperate and the participation of the clients, a well-founded social-educational diagnosis, and a sufficient duration of help.

Keywords
