New paper explores broader implications of CTI for timing of social service interventions

Relatively little attention has been paid to the dimension of time in the design of social work interventions. CTI is an example of an intervention that was explicitly developed to address a timing-specific need (enhancing continuity of care during transitions between institutional and community living). After describing the model and summarizing research that supports its effectiveness, this new article by Dan Herman and Jim Mandiberg of Columbia University considers examples of other time-sensitive interventions in social work and related fields and speculates on some potential advantages to such strategies. The authors conclude that further attention to various dimensions of timing in the design and evaluation of human service interventions is warranted
