Domestic Violence: The Counselor's Role in a Comprehensive Prevention Model.
Sweat, Nora; And Others
This report describes a collaborative developmental model for dealing with domestic violence which was designed and implemented by two high school home economics teachers at West Hardin High School in Elizabethtown, Kentucky to address the issue of domestic violence. It discusses the advantages of a collaborative effort between teachers and school counselors which features a curricular focus; the formation of a community advisory group to help plan the curriculum as a critical first step in getting grass roots acceptance of the curriculum; and the development of 3 videotapes and 11 computer diskettes for use as major teaching tools in the program. The counselor's role in the program is explained and the purpose of a school-wide assembly is discussed. Following a description of the specific program implemented, an illustration depicting the collaborative curriculum-based model is presented. The 3 videotapes and 11 computer diskettes produced by the program and available for sale to other programs are listed, along with an order form for ordering the materials. Aids for teaching prevention of family violence are given and addresses for teaching aids are provided. A 25-question true-false pretest on domestic violence is included. (NB)
