About the Author


Hewitt B. Rusty Clark, Ph.D., received his doctoral degree in developmental and child psychology from the University of Kansas in 1972. He is a professor in the Department of Child and Family Studies of the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute at the University of South Florida. His research interests and grants focus on evaluating the effectiveness of 1) individualized planning and intervention processes for children with emotional and behavioral difficulties and their families, 2) after-care services for juvenile offenders, and 3) the transition of youth and young adults into employment, educational opportunities, and independent living. Dr. Clark came to the University of South Florida after directing a comprehensive mental health program for families in Nevada, where he was affiliated with the University of Nevada. Over the course of his professional career, Dr.Clark has developed and researched various innovative programs and has published extensively, wit 3 books and more than 80 publications to his credit. He has served as President of the Florida Association for Behavior Analysis and continues to chair the Florida Peer Review Committee, which monitors the quality of treatment programs in developmental disabilities and mental health. Dr. Clark serves on various boards of editors for professional journals and consults nationally and internationally. He was a guest professor at Philipps University in Marburg, Germany, and has presented a series of invited addresses and workshops at conferences in Israel, Peru, Scotland, and Sweden. When Dr. Clark is not conducting research and workshops or teaching, consulting, and developing programs on his topics of professional interest, he enjoys his avocation of sailing the Gulf of Mexico and other seas.

Maryann Davis, Ph.D., received her doctoral degree in psychobiology from Emory University in 1990. She completed her clinical psychology training at Emory University in 1992. She is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and a faculty member of the Center for Mental Health Services Research. She has worked in private and public mental health agencies to examine how mental health services for children and adolescents can be improved. Her research interests focus on understanding the interface of the developmental process of entering young adulthood and the service system changes associated with attaining official adult status among young people with emotional or behavioral difficulties. Her current efforts focus on developing an effective model of service coordination for youth in transition. She is also examining the access that adolescents exiting public services have to adult mental health services and their involvement in the adult corrections system. Dr. Davis's work on developing an effective service coordination model and part of her work on this book were supported by a grant from the van Ameringen Foundation. She provides consultation to public agencies on working with individuals making the transition to adulthood and identifying system barriers to and solutions for developing better supports for these individuals.

I stumbled across a treasure, when I found this evidence-supported transition handbook (Clark & Unruh, 2009). The book describes the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model and illustrates its application and impact on the lives of youth and young adults with emotional/behavioral difficulties. As a clinician who specializes in transition to adulthood, and is continually researching interventions and approaches to guide youth, young adults, and their families through the transition maze, I’m not sure how I let this book slip past me. This amazing handbook not only provides a map of all the components/skills necessary for successful transition, it serves as a guide to creating a community of support for youth and young adults. It truly “takes a village” of support, and it is refreshing to find a book that addresses this mantra, along with skill acquisition. Congratulations to Drs. Clark and Unruh on the success of “Transition of Youth & Young Adults with Emotional or Behavioral Difficulties”! It must be hugely rewarding to know that you are helping so many people across the nation, and in Canada. I am confident that it will continue to spread.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides an update on the work that Dr. Clark and colleagues have done with transition-age youth and young adults since the publication of "Transition to Adulthood: A resource for assisting young people with emotional or behavioral difficulties" (2000). The unique challenges and developmental needs of this population of youth and young adults are thoughtfully and comprehensively covered, and the book includes several examples of programs that have incorporated the guidelines and practice elements of the Transition to Independence Process model. Dr. Clark and colleagues have also captured youth voice in this work, as young adults are included as co-authors of the chapters. This is an accessible and valuable resource for those in fields such as behavioral health, juvenile justice, special education, or vocational rehabilitation.

Format: Paperback
This evidence-supported handbook is a guide that any and all people who support transition-aged youth should read, study, and implement. Clark, Unruh, and the youth and young adult authors provide readers with first-hand accounts of how best to support youth and young adults during the transition to adulthood. As a supervisor, this handbook can be used as an on-going tool to guide staff and improve service delivery. As a change agent, this handbook can be used at both micro and macro levels to ensure agency, local, and state-wide policies are actually assisting youth during the transition. The handbook provides several opportunities to compare multiple programs nation-wide. Finally, as a social worker, this handbook provides many "ah-ha" moments and offers great guidance on how best to support youth with emotional or behavioral difficulties.
