Group Process in Alcohol Education.
American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association, Washington, DC.
This manual describes group process and relates it specifically to alcohol education and to a pilot study conducted in cooperation with the Milwaukee Public Schools. It reports on an effort to prepare teachers to use group process techniques in alcohol education, and on their subsequent use of the process with their high school students. The manual could be a valuable resource for those who prepare teachers to meet classroom responsibilities. The first part presents strategies for the classroom. It gives an overview of group process, discussing why it is worth trying, and how to prepare, use, and evaluate it. A subsection on techniques for alcohol education explores decision-making, and offers discussion hints and suggested activities. The second part describes the pilot study. It discusses an inservice workshop, describing teacher preparation and data collection, and comparing teachers' preconceptions with their experiences after using the material. This second part concludes with a discussion and recommendations; it recaps the project design, and presents pros and cons of the group process approach. (Author/JLL)
