Manual for Working with Parents of Adolescent Drug Users. Treatment Research Report.
Nurco, David N.; And Others
This manual outlines techniques for organizing and operating guided self-help groups for parents of drug-abusing young people. It is intended to be used by agencies working with youths, whose staff work cooperatively with parents needing the support provided by other parents experiencing similar problems. The manual shows parents how to improve their own psychological well-being, improve parent-child relationships, and set limits on the child's behavior. The role of the sponsoring agency in organizing the group is explained, and a sample agenda is outlined. Group activities and stages of group development are discussed. The appendix contains additional references including organizations that can provide further information. (JAC)
