Educating against Drug Abuse.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This book is a compilation of drug education and drug abuse prevention materials collected by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) along with example of activities carried out by various countries. It opens with four introductory papers by separate authors: (1) "Prevention of Drug Dependence: A Utopian Dream?" (Pierre Angel); (2) "A New Programme at Unesco" (Nicole Friderich); (3) "Developing a Prevention Strategy" (Etienne Brunswic); and (4) "Evaluating Preventive Education" (Pierre Angel). The next three sections provide descriptions of drug prevention work from a variety of countries. These descriptions are grouped into three categories: the direct approach (materials from the United Kingdom, Spain, Gabon, Australia, and the Sudan); the alternative approach (materials from the 1976 seminar on drug abuse in Rome and reports from France and Southeast Asia); and indirect and selective approaches (materials form Mexico, Kenya, Canada, Australia, Germany, Burma, and France). The final section provides evaluation results from drug abuse prevention programs in the Philippines, Canada, and the United Kingdom. (TE)
