This is a manual for use by trainees in the Puerto Rican history and culture training program, which helps to prepare drug abuse workers for dealing with the Puerto Rican community. The manual is designed to help trainees understand the importance of geographical, historical, cultural, and racial factors in the development of the Puerto Rican nation and their impact on Puerto Ricans today, especially Puerto Rican drug abusers. The manual begins with a general description of program goals for the participants. The learning models in the manual cover the following issues: (1) Puerto Rico's geography; (2) Puerto Rican stereotypes; (3) Indian, Spanish and African cultures that formed the Puerto Rican nation; (4) the United States' relationship with Puerto Rico; (5) the migration to the mainland; (6) the employment situation in the United States; (7) the Hispanic origins of the Puerto Rican family; (8) "Nuyorican" culture; (9) racism in Puerto Rico and the United States; and (10) problems and issues in dealing with Puerto Rican drug abusers. Also included is a module of sample client case studies and intervention strategies. Appendices contain referrals, references and additional readings and a glossary of terms from the various linguistic backgrounds of Puerto Ricans. (Author/APM)
