Increasing Awareness of Parental Use of Over-the-Counter Drugs as a Behavior Model for Preschool Children through Activity Lectures and Discussion.
The goals of this practicum were to encourage parents to assess their use of over-the-counter drugs as a behavior model for children and to increase parental knowledge about over-the-counter drugs. Parents attended three "activity lectures," that is, lectures that included group activities and discussion. Before the activity lectures, parents were given reading materials and before and after the lectures, parents were tested on their knowledge of proprietary drugs. After the lectures, parents' written paragraphs revealed an increase in their awareness of the influence of modeled drug use behavior on children. Appendices include 32 references, assessment measures, and related materials. (GLR)
