Abstract

This report addresses conceptual and practical problems in evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention which used a pyramid training model for improving helping skills for informal helpers in two rural communities. Against a background for a study of help‐giving and help‐seeking patterns, the transmission of helping skills from professional to community trainers to local helpers was studied. Impacts of the intervention on other aspects of the community are reported.
