Bibliography and Resource Guide on Alcohol and Other Drugs for Social Work Educators.
This bibliography and resource guide for social work educators aims to provide easy entrance to the literature on alcohol and other drug use. The introduction notes that some characteristics of the literature make access difficult. Literature on alcohol and other drugs is multi-disciplinary and thus appears in many different areas of publication; in addition, because of the structure of many data bases and their indexing practices, much of the literature does not appear in online searches. The social work literature on alcohol and other drugs tends to focus on discrete, narrowly circumstances clinical practice issues. Few works are directed to the social work practitioner who is a non-alcohol/drug specialist. The bibliography and resource materials include current materials, primarily from 1985 on under five topics: (1) early intervention and treatment; (2) the family; (3) prevention; (4) the work place; (5) special populations. Items were selected from the scholarly, formal literature which would provide an authoritative, current update and an entree to the literature. The guide organizes the materials in four sections: the social work literature on alcohol and drugs (includes a section on workplace-employee assistance programs); the alcohol and substance abuse literature (includes a section of classic articles); other resources (organizations, newsletters); resources for faculty (professional education, curriculum materials, the impaired professional, sources of information). Each reference includes a brief summary of its content. (JB)
