Training for Social and Health Care Personnel--Curriculum Development, Evaluation and Conducting a Pilot Test. Administrator's and Participant's Manuals.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
These participant and administrator manuals are designed for a seminar on alcohol and safety. This seminar is intended to be a small-group, intensive planning session dealing with the problems of handling people charged with drinking-driving offenses. The participants should be enforcement, judicial, presentence, prosecution, probation, rehabilitation, or other treatment personnel, with a group maximum of 20 people. All participants should be engaged professionally on a daily basis with drinking-driver cases. The purpose of the seminar is to encourage participants to act as more effective members of the whole alcohol-safety system. Another purpose is to break down misunderstandings and hostilities between traffic-law and treatment personnel. The seminar provides information about alcoholism, alcohol safety, and problem drinkers, but it is not intended for the well-trained probation officer or psychologist. The technical and professional skills needed for job performance are assumed; in fact, a strength of the seminar is the structure interchange of ideas and information among a group of experienced professionals.
