Alcohol Highway-Traffic Safety Workshop for State Officials.
Walker, William; And Others
The manual, designed for two-day workshops with 20 to 40 State officials, is directed toward recognizing the special role that State officials have in initiating and furthering systematic or team efforts to cope with the drinking-driver. It is one of five workshop manuals developed to assist State and local agencies involved in the development of programs for coping with the drinking-driver problem. Workshop goals include: encouraging communication between State officials, developing cooperative plans, and motivating implementation of these plans. Activities include: small group exercises, discussion of the nature and scope of the problems, deficiencies of the system approach, current approaches, breath analysis, and plan-of-action discussions. The manual is organized into three major parts: (1) the introduction, containing an overview of the problem, manual synopsis, and workshop staffing suggestions; (2) the governor's representative and chairman workshop materials providing all materials needed; and (3) appendixes consisting of preworkshop instructions, group moderator workshop materials, and miscellaneous materials. The miscellaneous materials include information on audiovisual equipment, instructions, evaluation forms, and followup materials. The manual is designed to be completely self-executing and includes sample letters, fully executed speeches, discussion guidelines, evaluation instruments, and participant selection criteria. (MW)
