Community-Based Prevention Specialist. Trainer Manual.
University Research Corp., Bethesda, MD.; National Drug Center for Training and Resource Development (DHHS/PHS), Washington, DC.
This trainer manual is designed to assist facilitators in the design of entry-level courses and programs for substance abuse prevention specialists. The manual initially concentrates on a basic, generic approach to community work, and introduces the knowledge and skills needed to implement substance abuse prevention programs by using the community and its subsystems. Course goals and objectives are reviewed in the introduction. The notes to the facilitator emphasize group facilitation skills, flexibility, and an understanding of the specific needs of minorities and rural populations. The nine training modules are detailed in terms of goals, objectives, required materials, exercises, and activities. Worksheets, supplementary materials, and references are also given. The course materials focus on prevention strategies, knowledge of the community, the development of community support, implementation techniques, and burnout. The course pre-/post-test is provided at the conclusion of this manual. (NRB)
