This training manual is for use in preparing staff members to use the Focus Model, which is a "school within a school" for disaffected high school students. The material is designed to be used as a resource aid following participation in an in-service workshop. The first section presents general and administrative preadoption material, including a needs assessment model and various methods for developing community awareness and participation. The second section contains operational aids such as staff selection guidelines, student selection guidelines, literature resources, and conceptual material about family functioning as it relates to disaffected youth. The third section introduces various human relations skills such as reality therapy, behavior modification, and transactional analysis, and discusses their applications to discipline, crisis intervention, and dealing with unacceptable behavior. The fourth section presents an evaluation model and instruments. (Author/BP)
