Program Evaluation Treatment Planning

A traveler to a new land came across a peacock. Having never seen this kind of bird before, he took it for a genetic freak. Taking pity on the poor bird, which he was sure could not survive in such deviant form, he set about to correct nature’s error. He trimmed the long, colorful feathers, cut back the beak, and dyed the bird black. “There now,” he said, with pride in a job well done, “you look more like a standard guinea hen.”
