Evaluating outcomes in a substance abuse training program for Southeast Asian human service workers : Problems in measuring change cross-culturally.
The following article describes the evaluation challenges faced in a cross-cultural substance abuse training program.
Non-Southeast Asian instructors designed and taught courses for Cambodian and Vietnamese human service workers over a two-year period.
Although cultural considerations were a central focus in the design of the program, instructors underestimated the difficulty of modifying standard questionnaires for use with Southeast Asian participants.
As a consequence, the formal evaluation process had limited benefit but several insights were gleaned through alternative evaluation methods.
