Adolescent Abuse and Neglect: Prevention and Intervention. Continuing Education Manual.
This self-study manual, for use by individuals or groups, was developed as a resource for social work practitioners and focuses on the assessment, intervention, and prevention of adolescent abuse and neglect. The introduction presents the philosophy of continuing education on which the manual is based, an overview of the manual, and an article on child abuse and neglect. Section II outlines suggested formats (3-hour workshop, 2-day workshop, and a course outline) for presenting the material to groups. Section III presents a series of exercises in experiential learning which are aimed at increasing participants' awareness of their own adolescent values, attitudes, and feelings and how these influence their work with adolescent clients. The final three sections deal with definig and identifying adolescent abuse and neglect, assessment (focusing on diagnosing family malfunctioning), and intervention, with practical suggestions for working with maltreated adolescents and their families. Each of these sections provides an overview of essential information and a compilation of resource material. The manual concludes with a bibliography, addresses of media distributors, and a list of additional resources. (KGB)
