Alcohol Abuse Training Relevant to Minority Populations. Handbook: Spanish Speaking.
Southern Area Alcohol and Education Training Program, Inc., Atlanta, GA.
The intent of this manual is to provide trainers with essential background information about alcohol abuse among Spanish-speaking Americans and with a practical, workable model for organizing and structuring a training program. The nature and extent of alcohol abuse among Spanish-speaking Americans and the particular patterns of drinking behavior observable among this sub-cultural group are discussed. A model program for training persons who will be working with Spanish-speaking alcoholics and alcohol abusers is outlined. A modular outline of a general alcohol education program for use in training alcohol abuse trainers is also presented. Included is an alcohol awareness test which can be used for pre-training assessment of the trainers' needs and post-training evaluation of the effectiveness of the program. An annotated bibliography of pertinent printed materials and a list of available films and audio-visual aids are provided. (Author/EB)
