Drugs, Youth, and The Group Rap: An Overview of the Drug Situation in Our Schools and Suggestions for Local Educators.
Erney, Tom
This paper was written to assist counselors in their individual and group counseling with drug-abusing youth. The author offers some personal thoughts concerning youth and drugs. He then presents an overview of the varied and conflicting observations and opinions of people in general and students in particular in regard to the secondary school drug scene. The report offers suggestions about what can be done to improve the drug abuse situation. The monograph explores the concept of the group rap with a stress on values clarification, and describes how to set up a group rap session using the values clarification approach. There are specific procedures for a number of relevant exercises. The booklet also contains a glossary of some basic drug terminology, a listing of further sources of drug information, and a short bibliography. The author closes with some additional personal comments, among them that alcohol abuse is another serious drug problem which cannot be ignored. (Author/BW)
