This chapter highlights key considerations for evaluating programs that address strained parent-child relationships. Key indicators for short- and long-term success are discussed, as well as the creation of a fidelity checklist to measure the process and implementation of an intervention, and the use of evaluation designs to answer specific questions about the intervention. Findings from the 2013 and 2014 program evaluation of OCB camp are presented to demonstrate the kinds of results that can be gained from a comprehensive evaluation of a complex intervention for strained parent-child relationships. 1 table and 32 references.
