Evaluation Works

EvaluationWorks provides a detailed, results oriented process that will help our clients better identify and define problems and understand the significant impact that is felt by the family or in a family environment because of those issues.

FatherAs is noted in the "About Us" section of the website, Dr. White has worked in the prevention science field for over a decade developing and evaluating programs related to adolescent development, parenthood (especially focused on fatherhood), and drug and alcohol prevention in collaboration with American Indians from Dakota/Lakota tribes. Dr. White’s psychometric experience includes measures in use around the world.

He has provided evaluation services and written academic and non-academic reports for a variety of programs including Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s “Southwest Institute for Addictive Diseases” in the Department of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Division of Psychiatry (an outpatient alcohol and drug treatment program), the U.S. Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Center’s “Academic Recovery and Enrichment” after-school program, the USDA’s Children, Youth, and Families at Risk (CYFAR) programs, North Dakota State University’s “Father Times” newsletter, and fatherhood programs from a variety of Head Start and Early Head Start organizations across the Midwest. Dr. White’s work in the fatherhood field led to the publication of a co-edited book called Why Fathers Count: The Importance of Fathers and Their Involvement with Children. He has also conducted evaluation and assessments for the Native American Fatherhood and Family Association’s “Fatherhood Is Sacred” program.

Finally, Dr. White has generated more than a half million dollars in funding from private (e.g., Rotary International, Bush Foundation), local (e.g., Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation), state (e.g, the State of South Dakota, South Dakota’s Department of Education, South Dakota State University) and federal (e.g., National Science Foundation, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) organizations. He has collaborated with many organizations around the country to accomplish his work.

The Foundation For Family Life looks to increase the research into the various issues faced by American families and the type of programs that can be developed and offered that will have a substantial impact on creating increasing exposure to these difficult problems, and the solutions that need to be developed in order to lessen or alleviate the burden that it creates in our society.
