Seen, Heard, and Engaged: A Process Evaluation for Children in Court Programs

November 4, 2013

This technical assistance bulletin provides guidance for Youth in Court programs in evaluating protocols and processes. It is a companion to the Seen, Heard, and Engaged: Children in Dependency Court Hearings publication released in 2012. For courts that have implemented or are considering implementing a Youth in Court protocol, this technical assistance brief includes useful information on the importance, components, and purpose of process evaluation. It includes useful tools for qualitative and quantitative measurement. There are also site examples to demonstrate how other courts have successfully utilized process evaluations in their own Youth in Court programs.
