Systemic Impact: Methods and Procedures
Having assessed the impact of the Adolescent Diversion Project on the youth and the change agents and explored the relationship between process variables and outcome, we now turn our attention to systemic impact. This chapter presents a discussion of the four models used to assess systemic impact. First, an overview sets the context from which these analyses of system-level impact grew. Following this, the methods used to examine each of the four models are presented. This chapter and the next draw heavily on John Saul’s (1981) masters thesis. His contribution is acknowledged.
