Peer Educator Training Manual.
Hoy, Thomas C.
The consequences of alcohol and drug abuse on college campuses across the United States has been well documented. Designed to bring the problems related to drug and alcohol abuse into focus, this training manual is a compilation of seminars created to allow facilitators (counselors, professionals, trainers) to train students as peer educators. The 20-hour program presents formal material on the effects of drug and alcohol and intervention skills to students and provides informal opportunities for discussion, group interaction, and presentation practice in order to reduce alcohol and other drug use through proactive prevention. Thirty-four appendices which constitute 40 percent of the document include interview questions for peer educators; application and statistical information on alcohol and drugs; and profiles of alcohol and drug users. Contains 31 references. (SR)
