Parenting Skills Curricula: A Descriptive Guide.
Bickel, Ann; Ertle, Vicki
This descriptive guide is designed as an ongoing document which focuses on parent education in alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention efforts. The guide describes available curricula for parent education which are appropriate for K-12 comprehensive AOD prevention and intervention programs in schools and communities. The majority of the programs included are sequential, instructor-led programs which require a minimum of 10 hours of parent and/or family participation. All provide information and practical skill-building opportunities. Instructor training is required for many programs, but all are designed to be easily implemented in schools or communities. Each selection includes a description of the format, content, available training, and materials for the programs. None of the programs included have been evaluated, and none are being endorsed. Reasons for including parenting education programs in a comprehensive plan to prevent AOD use among youth are listed, and guidelines for selecting and implementing a curriculum are included. (LLL)
