With the second edition of the PROGRAM PLANNING & EVALUATION WORKBOOK, Strategic Prevention Solutions provides a thoughtful and practical guide for those working for social and systems change. This Workbook successfully discusses the real-life messiness of creating a more just world. It honors community wisdom and addresses critical issues around power, all while making the reader feel less isolated. The author and contributors understand the peaks and valleys in program planning and evaluation and provide expert guideposts and encouragement to see you through the process.
I have been focused on program development, evaluation, and sustainability for many decades and was inspired and re-engaged by this tool. It has something for all different types of learners and would be a great resource for any planning team. I love a good worksheet, and this is a whole book full of them! This tool also fills a void about how issues of community readiness, program staff burnout, and organizational capacity are connected and need to be part of our ongoing conversations as we build stronger connections and supports for social justice.
