The different SFP interventions around the world face similar challenges: cultural adaptation and fidelity, instruments of evaluation, validation of international adaptations, follow-up analysis, gender issues, incorporation of technologies in the implementation…
This one-day workshop aims at aligning the concerns of SFP researchers and implementers around these subjects. In special, one of the main aims is to reach a “gold standard” of evaluation and to discuss the best instruments for it. Guest speakers: Karol Kumpfer (Emeritus Prof. University of Utah, USA), John Toumbourou (Professor Deakin University, Australia) and Jorge Negreiros (Professor University of Porto, Portugal).
