Alcohol Highway-Traffic Safety Workshop for Alcohol Rehabilitation and Treatment Personnel.
Walker, William; And Others
The manual, designed for one-day workshops for 20 to 40 alcoholism rehabilitation and treatment professionals who are involved with traffic safety problems, is one of a series 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 treatment professionals, developing cooperative plans, and motivating implementation of these plans. Activities include: small group exercises, the film "Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury," discussions of current approaches to the problem, and drinking-driver treatment modalities. 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 (these include information on audiovisual equipment, instructions, evaluation forms, and an optional alcohol-awareness activity). 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)
