Evaluators used three approaches to guide the process: empowerment evaluation, utilizationfocused evaluation and theory based evaluation. Evaluation process was composed by three main components: evaluability assessment and making clear of program theory, developing evaluation plan and interpretation and use of evaluation results. Results showed that program evaluation can be an important improvement process both for the program and for the social workers group. Keywords: program evaluation, social work prevention
