A Drug Abuse Training Program for Teachers.
Silverthorne, Colin P.; Goldberg, Richard M.
The design detailed in this report was aimed at facilitating a meaningful implementation of a drug abuse training program into a portion of the Florida State School System. It was pointed toward curriculum development rather than personal change. The focus of the design was to provide a well-balanced approach to participants understanding their feeling about the issues that they would have to present to the students, and also provide the necessary facts and resources that they would require to teach about drug abuse. In designing the workshop, strong use was made of the laboratory method. The training evolved out of three one-day information-focused in-service training days for teachers only. Some comments on the strengths and weaknesses of the workshop are presented. The staff felt some real sense of accomplishment at the end of the experience and were generally pleased with the successful blend of information sharing and laboratory method. (Author)
