Porter, Thomas L.; And Others
The intent of this manual is to provide counselors with essential background information about alcohol abuse among blacks and with a practical, workable model for organizing and structuring a training program. A general discussion of black self-awareness in relation to alcohol abuse is presented. An approach to counseling and serving the black alcoholic is suggested. A model program for training persons who will be working with black alcoholics and alcohol abusers is outlined. A general alcohol education program for use in training alcohol abuse counselors is also outlined. Included is a black vocabulary test and an alcohol awareness test that can be used for pre-training assessment of the counselor's needs and post-training evaluation of the effectiveness of the program. A bibliography of pertinent printed materials and a list of available films and audio-visual aids are provided. (Author/EB)
