R0CADRNG: R0 CarAdlt: Total Number of Adults Mentioned

Total Number of Adults Mentioned.

MEASURE: Caring Adult

The Contact with Caring Adults inventory was derived from several sources for this
study (Nakkula, et al., 1990; Phillips and Springer, 1992; Institute of Behavioral
Science, 1990). In the release interview, it assesses the range of supportive 
adults in the institution. This support is assessed across eight domains. This 
measure also asks youth to identify the total number of adults who are supportive
in each domain and to nominate the person that they are most likely to turn to 
within each domain. Higher scores indicate a greater number of relationships with 
adults who spend time with the adolescent and provide support.
