Planning Alcoholism Counseling Education (PACE): A Curriculum and Instructional Resource Guide.
National Center for Alcohol Education, Arlington, VA.
This resource guide provides curriculum and instructional information to facilitate the development of alcoholism counselor preparation programs, and is intended to be used by those responsible for manpower development, education, and training, i.e., educational planners and counselor educators, state agency personnel, and credentialing organization board members. The guide is organized in four sections and four appendices. Section 1 provides an overview and introduction to the guide, which describes the purpose, and the potential users of PACE, and summarizes the content of the succeeding sections. Section 2 contains 48 activity statements that describe alcoholism counseling. These statements are grouped into 12 functional headings; the first 7 headings are activities that deal with direct client-counselor interaction (e.g., family counseling, group counseling, assessment); the 5 remaining headings are activities that counselors perform to insure the quality and continuity of the counseling process (e.g., professional conduct, documentation, education). Each activity statement is followed by a description of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to perform that activity. Section 3 presents five categories of topics, in instructional units related to the 48 activity statements; each includes a rationale for the content, a content outline, suggested instructional activities, and a partial list of resources. A foldout is provided which displays the units in outline form under appropriate categories. Section 4 addresses issues that must be considered in planning an educational program in alcoholism counseling (i.e., the philosophy of instructional design, and the necessary characteristics of a formal alcoholism counselor education program). Appendix A describes the activities of alcoholism counseling; Appendix B suggests resources for evaluating student performance; Appendix C provides ordering information for materials listed as resources for the instructional units; and Appendix D presents the desired counselor attitudes from Section 2, listed by activity.
