CSAP Substance Abuse Resource Guide: Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers.
Miller, Andrea B., Ed.
Parents and guardians have a tremendous influence on the attitudes and behavior of their children, especially when it comes to substance abuse. Information and referrals to assist parents and guardians, as well as information and resources for prevention specialists and community leaders, are provided in this resource guide. The guide was compiled from a variety of publications and databases and represents the most current information to date, although it is not an all-inclusive listing of materials on this topic. It opens with an overview of prevention materials, featuring materials for parents' personal interest, as well as materials for parent educators, counselors, and community leaders. The next section provides synopses of studies, articles, and reports regarding adolescent substance use, parental influences, multicultural issues, and information derived from national surveys. Each synopsis includes complete publication information. Some research on studies, articles, and reports about parenting and drug-abusing women also appears in this research section. The last portion of the guide lists groups, organizations, and programs dedicated to supporting children and preventing substance abuse. A list of Internet access sites is also included in this section. (RJM)
