To strengthen the implementation quality of the Tier 1 Program (Secondary 1 Level) of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong, a 20-hour training program is provided to the potential program implementers before program implementation. A total of 49 workshops were conducted with 2,359 teachers, social workers and allied professionals participating in the program. This paper describes the objectives, development and implementation of the Secondary One Training Program delivered in the first cycle of the P.A.T.H.S. Project. Conceptual and practical issues underlying the training program as well as the implications for future training programs are also discussed.
