Development of Alcoholism Programming in Colorado and Subsequent Training Efforts.
Forquer, Margaret J.
The paper focuses on training efforts resulting from a grant awarded to the Colorado Department of Health in 1976 by the Western Area Alcohol Education and Training Program. A tape on the physiological aspects of alcoholism developed during the grant year was used in conjunction with the paper, and both were very well received. The grant was a cooperative effort between Fort Logan's Applied Training for Alcoholism Specialists (ATAS) Program and the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division. Training goals for the project, January 1976 through January 1977, were threefold: (1) To provide one month of training at the ATAS for alcoholism program directors and supervisors using the "Training the Trainer" model; (2) To provide training and education in the basic skills of alcoholism identification for 60 new staff members of non-hospital detoxification centers at the ATAS program at Fort Logan Mental Health Center; (3) To provide on-site training programs, workshops and consultation for persons working in the alcohol field who did not have access to more formal programs. The program staff was well satisfied with the results they achieved, which are briefly described in the paper. (Author)
