Tiffany, Jennifer; Tobias, Donald; Raqub, Arzeymah; Ziegler, Jerome
The teaching guide and resource manual present information to help parents and other adults talk to children and adolescents about AIDS. The teaching guide is a resource for conducting parent AIDS education programs. It presents step-by-step instructions for facilitators that explain the activities and objectives and the teaching techniques for small groups who are learning about AIDS, communication techniques, risk assessment, and risk reduction skills. The resource manual presents information for both facilitators and participants of the program. Both the teaching guide and the resource manual have three chapters that include similar information. Chapter 1 provides specific facts about AIDS and HIV transmission and describes risk reduction methods. Chapter 2, "How To Talk to Kids about AIDS," presents ideas on communicating about AIDS and risk reduction with young people of various ages. Chapter 3, "Risk and Change," introduces ways of talking about and practicing risk reduction. The last section of the teaching guide lists resources for more information on AIDS and HIV services. A glossary of important terms is also included in both the guide and manual. (SM)
