Abstract

Subjective outcome evaluation was carried out for workers implementing the Astro Kids and Astro Teens designed for high-risk youth in Hong Kong. Each social worker was invited to fill out a self-administered feedback form after each session. In addition, each respondent was asked to complete a Global Subjective Outcome Evaluation Form after the completion of the training program. The subjective outcome evaluation data regarding the global evaluation of the Astro Teens and Astro Kids programs clearly indicate that most of the social workers were satisfied with the programs. They also perceived many positive features of the programs and felt that they were helpful in terms of knowledge acquisition, healthy attitude formation, and building resistance against substance abuse.
