- What are your plans to sustain the practice?
- How motivated are administrative and clinical supervisors to participate and maintain the PRAXES program?
- Do you have someone within the agency who would be the champion for the PRAXES program?

- Would your staff be interested in participating in training for a parenting program?
- Is the agency prepared for the trainings, manuals, and consultation calls that accompany the PRAXES program?
