The Cultural and Contextual Adaptation of a Childhood Obesity Preventive Intervention Program

This article describes the adaptation of a parent-focused evidence-based childhood obesity intervention program so that it could be implemented by county-based Extension educators in coordination with school district personnel in rural Pennsylvania. The Lifestyle Positive Parenting Program was designed and evaluated in Australia in clinical settings. Several minor and more serious adaptations, such as featured recipes and the content of follow-up telephone calls, were made so that the program would be more appropriate for and appealing to target families. Some conceptual issues regarding the adaptation of evidence-based programs are reviewed.
