This summary is based on the Report of an Evaluation Study carried out on the Strengthening Family Communication To Prevent Misuse Of Alcohol And Drugs pilot programme. As the programme under study was at the formative stage of development, the evaluation procedures were mainly qualitative. The primary recommendations of the evaluation were: misconceptions and expectations of participants in the programme content and format need to be addressed; fathers and 'at risk' groups need to be targeted for inclusion; the objectives set for the programme may be too ambitious for the timeframe; the participatory element of the programme is difficult for many participants and tutors should be trained appropriately; timetabling issues need to be resolved to allow materials to be produced in time for sessions.
