Abstract

The current study examined the use of socio-emotional well-being measures among a sample of 57 children and youth living in a congregate care type setting such as a group home or shelter. One or two measures were administered depending on the age of the child/youth, the Behavioral and Emotional Rating Scale-2 for children ages 5–18 years and the Youth Quality of Life-Short Form for youth ages 13–18 years. In addition to the measures completed by the children/youth, caregivers also completed measures assessing the social-emotional well-being of the child in her/his care. Results suggest differences between child/youth assessments of their own well-being and adult caregiver assessments. Important considerations for future measurement of socio-emotional well-being and implications for practice and future research were discussed.
