Thoughts & Views on the Gulf War. Facilitators Notes and Workbook.
Hollings, Rick; Berghoff, Beth K.
This document presents a workbook and facilitator's notes designed for use with small groups or with individual students in secondary schools to help them cope with troubling events related to the Gulf War. The material contained in the workbook is designed to help students deal with each of seven stages that the mastery model sees individuals working through in order to minimize the emotional trauma associated with a major crisis: discrimination, coping, restitution, survivor's guilt, reintroduction of structure, insight into relationships between symptoms and trauma, and development/widening of a support system. The facilitator's notes recommend meeting with students over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. The student journal contains the following sections to be completed by the student: (1) About Me; (2) The Military life; (3) Feelings; (4) How I Stay Informed; (5) How I Cope; (6) Helpers; (7) Separations; (8) Problems on the Home Front; (9) More Feelings; and (10) Taking Care of Me. Following the first meeting in which the journal is discussed and the first section completed and discussed, it is suggested that subsequent sessions include a brief meeting followed by time for students to individually complete one section of the journal to be used as the focus of discussion for the rest of the session. Included are 10 separate sections which may be completed individually or in combination and an incomplete letter for students to complete. (NB)
