Abstract This paper explores the social, methodological and operational dimensions of an adaptation of the Exploring Together program for primary school age children in three remote communities of Northern Australia. This program, whose goal is to identify, address and reduce the incidence of conduct disorders in schools and families of Indigenous children, raises a host of cross-cultural issues of both programmatic and theoretical interest. The cross-cultural implementation of the program is seen to expose to critical scrutiny many of the assumptions of social-psychological interventions, such as the spatial and temporal separation, between the institutional forms of family, school and community, between formal and informal relationships between parents, teachers and health professionals. Above all, this intervention problematises the nature of the boundaries between the format of mainstream programs and their cross-cultural realisations. These conflicting currents are examined in the terms of a social realist perspective (Pawson and Tilley 2000), from which a typology of evaluative methodologies of intervention strategies is derived.
