Abstract

In this chapter we investigate Chinese students’ perceptions of the Tier 2 Program of the community-based P.A.T.H.S. Project targeting secondary school students with greater psychosocial needs in Hong Kong (N = 3,977). Results showed that students were satisfied with the program, implementers, and effectiveness of the program. Results also revealed significant impacts of program approach and participant types on students’ evaluation of the program, implementers, and program effectiveness. Client satisfaction ratings were also influenced by grade level. As predicted, the three aspects of subjective outcome evaluation were significantly correlated with each other. Besides, perceptions of the program and implementers predicted perceived effectiveness of the program. The present study gives further support for the effectiveness of the Tier 2 Program of the community-based P.A.T.H.S. Project in Hong Kong.
