National Center for Alcohol Education, Arlington, VA.
This training program, designed to assist treatment programs decision-makers in planning, implementing, and monitoring practices and services for alcoholic women, provides participants the opportunity to: (1) measure the current state of their agency programs; (2) select priorities for change; and (3) develop an action plan for change. The program is designed for teams of two people from the same agency, one with decision-making responsibility and one interested in women's treatment. Two trainers, one male and one female, conduct one-three-hour sessions in small group exercises and discussions, lecturettes, and brainstorming with a group of 20 participants over a 2 l/2 day period. This manual helps trainers prepare for and conduct the course. It includes a session-by-session overview, refresher materials on training methods, guidelines for training program management, sample recruitment materials, and masters for duplicating participant handouts. A series of session outline cards accompanies the manual and includes specific directions for conducting each session, goals and objectives, and materials needed for learning activities. (Author/NRB)
