The SEE-PET: A Participatory Method for Developing and Measuring the Effectiveness of Psychosocial Programs
The SEE_PET is a rapid participatory method that can be used to develop indicators of psychosocial well-being in cultural context. The SEE_PET modifies Stepwise Ethnographic Exploration, a method based on consensus among expert practitioners, which was used successfully in this study to establish indicators of subjective well-being. Adapted to a participatory evaluation process, SEE_PET can be used to engage community members in evaluating the psychosocial components of humanitarian emergency programs designed for their benefit. The SEE_PET is designed to be part of a baseline program assessment, to develop indicators of program effectiveness against which a program can be assessed.
