Moore, Mary; Delworth, Ursula
This paper describes a five-stage process for the development, implementation, and evaluation of counseling outreach programs. State I takes the reader from the formulation of a germinal program idea through the procedures of assessing need for the program, assessing of agency resources, building a program planning team, and conducting a thorough literature search. Stage II sequentially outlines how to specify and enumerate behavioral goals for the program, how to develop its delivery system, how to design evaluation procedures and what to prepare for running the pilot program. Stage III emphasizes the importance of effective program publicity, the necessity of developing staff training methods, some notes on actually conducting the pilot program and ends with a discussion of the importance of studying the pilot evaluation results before deciding to embark on Stage IV. Stage IV consists of offering the program on a regular basis with refinement of training and evaluation methodologies. Finally, Stage V includes the periodic re-examination of the program in relation to its target, purpose, method and changing agency needs. (Author)
