11. 3.4.3.4 Outcomes. * Decrease in the number of children failing to thrive. * Decrease in petrol sniffing. * Decrease in grog running. * Increase in sobriety and therefore less violence and subsequent trauma. * Increased understanding between Aboriginal and nonAboriginal members within a Community. * Increase- in CDEP projects, and participation. * Improved communication with town based organizations to control drunken behaviour in town. 4.0. EVALUATION. The evaluation methodology will be an ongoing activity including provision for timely feedback to project workers in order to ensure utilization within project development. Activity reports and evaluation results will be reported to the funding/sponsoring stakeholder, ie. ATSIC. Evaluation will include: . Community Health Centre statistics in regard to incidents of violence, malnourishment and drunkenness; . reports from educators using paintings, ideograms, taped conversations and videos; and . number of equivalent working partnerships established or supported by HALT. Appropriate research bodies will be engaged to ensure a design of effective evaluation strategies and independence of results. An aim in the development of appropriate recording instruments will be that they are "user friendly" in terms of the communication modes which are familiar to the users.
