A Family Response to the Drug Problem; A Family Program for the Prevention of Chemical Dependence with Group Facilitator Guidelines.
This manual, with accompanying facilitator's guide, presents a program for drug education designed for use by groups of families led by volunteer facilitators. The program offers an approach toward building better communications and understanding among family members. The program consists of six group sessions based on learning experiences emphasizing communication skills. For each session the participant's manual includes readings, exercises, assignments, discussion questions and suggestions for role playing. The appendix provides necessary background information: a brief history of drugs and drug use, a brief pharmacology of selected drugs, and a glossary of medical/scientific terms. The facilitator's guide includes instructions for each session, specific suggestions for group discussion techniques and a number of role-playing situations. Audiovisual materials are available and the appendix includes a list of NIMH lending libraries. (DOW)
