Devereux MA/RI staff appointed to Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology board

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Massachusetts and Rhode Island Director of Clinical Services Ashley Warhol, Psy.D., and Coordinator of Diagnostic Services and Clinical Training Rachel Schein, Psy.D., HSP, were recently appointed to the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology’s (SCCAP) Acute, Intensive and Residential Service (AIRS) executive board. SCCAP is a division of the American Psychological Association.

AIRS, a special interest group within SCCAP, is dedicated to the promotion of policy, practice, research, training, consultation and leadership related to the psychological assessment and treatment of individuals in acute, intensive and residential behavioral health settings.

Warhol was named co-chair of the AIRS executive board’s practice committee, which provides a forum for members to exchange ideas about clinical practices and respond to real-time challenges, such as mask-wearing compliance. Schein was appointed secretary of the board and is responsible for assisting with communications and other tasks. Warhol and Schein were selected to serve on the board as a result of their 10-plus years of behavioral healthcare experience.

“I am thrilled and honored to be appointed to the AIRS executive board,” said Warhol. “For the past decade, I have worked in residential care settings and, over time, I have learned about the challenges related to providing support and interventions that are unique to these settings. I am excited to share my experiences, observations and ideas with other clinicians, researchers, educators and administrators as we strive to improve the quality of care for the individuals and families we serve.”

Improving acute, intensive and residential services

AIRS develops, implements, measures and disseminates treatments and knowledge to improve the delivery of psychological services to youth and adults in acute, intensive and residential treatment settings. Specifically, AIRS aims to:

  • Educate others about acute and intensive treatment settings
  • Promote awareness of the services offered in these settings, and across levels of care
  • Implement evidence-based assessments and treatments
  • Support research related to the psychological assessment and treatment of youth
  • Develop models of service delivery
  • Define best practices for use
  • Disseminate information about the psychological assessment and treatment of youth

“Being on the AIRS executive board is a fantastic opportunity,” Schein noted. “At Devereux, we are committed to providing innovative and evidence-based trauma-focused care to youth and adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences. I am excited to discuss the great work we are doing with my fellow board members and learn about other trends and advancements in the field of behavioral healthcare.”
