Community Participation in the Cultural Adaptation of a Prevention Curriculum
Clinton, Amanda; Amesty, Elvia
School Psychology International, v31 n5 p467-477 Oct 2010
The present project analysed the use of participatory models during the process of application of a prevention program with preschool-aged children in Maracaibo, Venezuela. Relevant phases in achieving community collaboration are delineated and challenges are discussed. Results indicate that participatory models provided an effective means of introducing and carrying out a prevention program in local schools although a significant level of commitment was required from all groups involved.
