This Resource Book contains summaries of factual information on drug abuse as well as techniques and suggestions that experienced drug educators have found helpful in communicating with young people who are thinking about drugs or have already experimented with them. An effort has been made to include papers by medical authorities and social scientists which reflect a range of views regarding drugs. The goal is the development of skills in the use of drug materials which will enable teachers to open up the kind of dialogue and discussion that is a prime requisite in influencing youth attitudes. A section on planning drug abuse education workshops is included. The book is divided into five parts: (1) teaching about drugs; (2) facts about drugs; (3) supplementary reports on drugs; (4) drug films; and (5) how to plan a drug abuse education workshop. Selected references are listed at the end of the book. (KJ)
