IDHW Social Workers and Supervisors Surveys. In September 2004, the Perception of Change Survey was administered to supervisors and social workers in Nampa, Region III (n=7) and Boise, Region IV (n=11). The Perception of Change survey (Appendix B) asked respondents to rate how effective IDHS was on six items before the PTP and currently (September 2004, 11 months into PTP implementation). Items were rated as 1=not at all effective, 2=somewhat effective, and 3=greatly effective. A similar process was repeated in March 2006. As indicated in Tables 10 and 11, the PTP was perceived by supervisors and social workers as significantly effective in helping motivate parents to agree to substance abuse assessment, complete assessment, and enter substance abuse treatment, and in coor- dinating CPS plans with substance abuse treatment and collaborating with substance abuse professionals regarding parents.
