Process evaluation might reveal, for example, that a program has not been implemented as planned, that the reality does not match the blueprint (Hyman & Wright, 1971). Moreover, analysis of the process of a preventive program might shed light on reasons why it did not work or why some parts were more effective than others.

The goal of secondary efforts is to reduce the prevalence of a disorder by abbreviating both its course of action and the extent of its disruptiveness upon normal functioning. Secondary prevention requires that we increase our ability to identify the evolutionary sequence through which disorders proceed and to modify remedial strategies to fit nascent dysfunctional states.
