University of Southern Maine, Human Services Development Institute. 1990. Project AIMS: Developmental indicators of emotional health. Portland, ME: University of Southern Maine, Human Services Development Institute, ca. 200 pp.

Annotation: Project AIMS was a five year, federal and state funded educational demonstration project targeted to benefit the emotional well-being of children birth to five years of age and their families.

The primary activities of the project were to construct, field-test and disseminate a brief emotional health assessment tool; educate and train in mental health; and network with Maine's early intervention providers. The project manual contains an overview, intake forms, parent questionnaires, points of observation, interview questions, and brief interventions.

Gossert D. 1989. Family Assessment Project: [Final report]. Denver, CO: Colorado Department of Health , 19 pp.

Annotation: This project developed and refined a family assessment questionnaire and data base, collected data on previously unsurveyed populations of chronically ill children, established the prevalence rate of psychosocial distress among families with chronically ill children, and assessed their readiness for intervention. The goal was to separate out those families at high risk who were not connected to any agency from those at high risk who were using community services. Those high-risk, unconnected families were to have first priority for social work intervention. Through this screening process, scarce staff time was to be directed to those families most in need of services. Services were to be targeted for the coordination of all the agencies involved with a family. Intervention was based on communication from the family.
