Alcohol Highway-Traffic Safety Workshop for the Judiciary.
Walker, William; And Others
The manual, designed for one-and-one-half-day workshops with 20 to 40 judges who handle driving while intoxicated (DWI) cases, is directed toward the exploration of new sanctions and treatments, increased coordination and communication with other agencies involved, and public education concerning the scope of the drinking-driver problem. It is one of five workshop manuals developed to assist State and local agencies involved in programs related to the drinking-driver problem. Workshop goals include: encouraging communication between judges, developing cooperative plans, and motivating implementation of these plans. Activities include: examination of case studies, discussion of the problems, deficiencies in the systems approach, current approaches, and an alcohol awareness seminar involving breath analysis. The manual is organized into three major parts: (1) the introduction, with problem overview, manual synopsis, and workshop staffing suggestions; (2) the governor's representative and chairman workshop materials; and (3) appendixes including preworkshop instructions, group moderator workshop materials, and miscellaneous materials (these 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)
