DTeach Family Groups: A Handbook for Dysfunctional Teachers.
Reviczky, JoAnn
There is psychological evidence to support the theory that many abused children become abusers themselves. This study investigates the probabilities of classroom abuse by teachers in relation to their past abuse experiences. A second purpose of the study is to create a self-help handbook for teachers from dysfunctional families who are in need of support and guidance (dysfunctional and abuse are defined as physical, sexual, or emotional and may be the result of alcoholism, addictions, or learned behavioral patterns). The main body of the document presents a guide for organizing support groups for teachers from dysfunctional families in schools, school districts, and communities. The guide describes the DTeach Family Group, a 12-step self-help group. It includes the following components: the 12 steps; the 12 traditions; a suggested group structure; meetings and procedures; suggested ideas for meetings; planning a meeting program; sample preamble/welcome and closing; how to start a group; suggestions for topics; slogans; and a list of other organizations that deal with crisis, drugs and alcohol, family services, and prevention.
