A Brief, Preventative Approach to Child Abuse.
Valentine-Dunham, Karrie; Gipson, Martin T.
A brief overview describes a study in which high school students were taught to deal effectively with "critical incidents" in a pre-parenting program. The program described involved pretest; training in anger control, alternative responses to stress, and appropriate responses to behaviors; and posttesting. The study found students could be taught to deal effectively with critical child behaviors they might encounter when they become parents. This overview is followed by a session-by-session training outline for a preventative approach to child abuse to be used with high school students. Forms and instructions for day-to-day training session exercises, and pre- and post-testing measures are included. (NRB)
