Developing the Resilient Child: A Prevention Manual for Parents, Schools, Communities and Individuals.
Skerker, Roni; McDonough, George
The purpose of this manual is to provide families, educators, community leaders, and others with current information to assist in the development of comprehensive prevention programs that provide opportunities for all children to develop into drug-free, productive adults. Part I describes the psychosocial factors that place children at risk for drug use, violence, school failure and other destructive behaviors. The manual places these factors in the context of a child's interaction with peers, family, school, and community. It describes the risk factors, as well as the protective factors in each of these interactions and how a program should address the interactions. Part II outlines the characteristics of children in different development stages and offers examples of strategies that are appropriate to each stage. Part III includes sample worksheets that are designed to facilitate a step-by-step approach to developing a comprehensive prevention education program. Part VI contains visual aids for photocopying or making into transparencies. (Contains 33 references.) (JE)
