Training and Support
The curricula binder is thorough, well scripted, and detailed, and it clearly outlines session delivery procedures. It also provides guidance on how to abbreviate sessions for different time segments, as needed. Handout masters and role-play cards are provided and clearly identified. Training programs are available for group facilitators, program staff, and administrative personnel. Program training is required and includes information for building the cultural competence of facilitators. Evaluation forms are provided to support adherence monitoring for quality assurance purposes. Pre- and posttests are included for use in measuring outcomes. Curriculum log sheets are provided and can be used to facilitate fidelity monitoring.
Few supplemental resources for implementers are identified by the developer. Although each session in the curriculum has a stated objective, a clear definition of the desired behavioral and attitudinal outcomes for youth and parents is not provided.
