PAUL, Joaquín de; ARRUABARRENA, Ignacia  e  INDIAS, Silvia. Pilot Implementation of two evidence based programs (SafeCare and Incredible Years) in Child Protection Services in Gipuzkoa (Spain). Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.2, pp.105-120. ISSN 2173-4712.

This paper describes the implementation process of two evidence-based programs in Gipuzkoa's Child Protection System (Spain): SafeCare and Incredible Years. SafeCare is a home visiting program for high-risk and neglectful families with children under 5 years. Incredible Years is a parenting skills training program for families with children between 4 to 8 years with behavior problems whose parents have significant difficulties to manage. The paper describes the process by which public institutions responsible for child protection in Gipuzkoa decided to shift from current intervention programs towards more structured, focused, and short-term programs that have shown positive results in previous applications in other countries. Issues related to programs adaptation, selection, and training of professionals and preand postresults obtained in the preliminary application of SafeCare and Incredible Years to a limited set of families are presented. Finally, the next step of the implementation process (pilot implementation with a randomized control trial design) is described. The paper discusses a significant number of issues that have been important throughout this process and that may be useful for administrations and institutions that wish to undertake a similar process.
