Engaging and Training Professionals to Implement Family Strengthening Programs: Lessons Learned
Scarrow, Andrea; Fuhrman, Nicholas E.; Futris, Ted G.
Journal of Extension, v53 n5 Article 5FEA3 Oct 2015
Child welfare professionals (CWPs) who attended the Healthy Relationship and Marriage Education Training delivered by Extension educators in Georgia participated in focus groups 6 months post-training to investigate what elements of the training influenced their implementation of the concepts and their recommendations for future trainings. The findings revealed three elements that influenced implementation: relevant content, interactive training, and trainer attributes. CWPs made recommendations concerning content/curriculum format, field implementation, and training methods. Conclusions included recommendations for both CWPs and Extension educators. As an unexpected outcome, results suggested that qualitative evaluation may reinforce and strengthen partnerships between Extension and other agencies.
