Coping with police stress by Gail A Goolkasian( Book )

10 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for persons interested in initiating or modifying police stress programs, this report highlights police stress programs, this report highlights the strengths and weaknesses of various program structures, operations, and policies, based on an empirical study of existing programs. Information came from a review of literature on police stress, telephone interviews with representatives of 16 police stress programs, and onsite studies of eight police stress programs selected to represent a wide range of program approaches, characteristics, and services. The introduction defines stress, identifies stressors in police work and stress effects on police officers, and describes police departments' traditional handling of stress-related problems. Chapters focus on program planning, program organization and administration, program services, training and other preventive measures, and the monitoring and evaluation of police stress programs. Major findings and recommendations in each of these areas are summarized in the concluding chapter. Appendixes list the programs contacted by phone and contain the stress counseling project policy plan for the Rochester Police Department (New York). Also included are the police commissioner's memorandum on the Boston police stress program and police stress training materials. Chapter footnotes

Secondary effects of binge drinking on college campuses by Henry Wechsler( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The College Alcohol Study (1993) surveyed nearly 18,000 undergraduate students at 140 colleges concerning their experience of either "binge drinking" or "secondary binge effects" (harm experienced as a result of binge drinking by others). The survey found that 44 percent of respondents were binge drinkers (50 percent of men and 39 percent of women). Across the colleges, binge drinkers ranged from 1 to 70 percent of students on campus. On high drinking-level campuses, 87 percent of the non-binge drinkers living on campus experienced negative consequences of excessive drinking by other students (such as having studying or sleep interrupted, having property damaged, or experiencing unwanted sexual advances). On low drinking-level campuses, 62 percent reported experiencing such secondary effects of binge drinking. Non-binge drinking women living on campuses with high levels of binge drinking had almost twice the risk of experiencing unwanted sexual advances as their counterparts at lower drinking-level schools. Among 10 recommendations for college administrators are: (1) using student media to highlight the problem; (2) building alliances with the community; (3) restricting conditions under which alcohol is allowed on campus; (4) encouraging athletic directors to help promote mature behavior; and (5) appointing a health and safety advocacy committee.

Reducing alcohol problems on campus : a guide to planning and evaluation by Robert F Saltz( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism established the Task Force of the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to review and report on the existing research on college student drinking, including the evaluation of camps and community policies, prevention programs, and early intervention strategies. This review has been published as a Call to Action: Changing the Culture of Drinking at U.S. Colleges. This brief guide is intended to provide some direction as to how this research can be incorporated most effectively into an explicit planning process to maximize the impact of any prevention strategy and to monitor any interventions implementation and local impact. The guide is organized around the five basic steps of effective prevention planning and evaluation: (1) identifying specific goals and objectives; (2) reviewing the evaluation research; (3) outlining how the intervention will work; (4) creating and executing a data collection plan; and (5) providing feedback to the intervention program. The guide concludes with references that relate to topics of alcohol-related problems among college students. (Contains 29 references.) (Sld)

Experiences in effective prevention : the U.S. Department of Education's Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants by William DeJong( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to ongoing concern about unacceptable levels of aod (alcohol and other drug) use on campuses, in 1998 Congress authorized the Department of Education to identify and promote effective prevention through a model grants program. In 1999, osdfs (Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools) launched an important component of the Department's efforts to advance best practices, the Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants. The program's goal is to move the field toward more effective practice. Applying institutions are required to describe an innovative program or policy that was integrated into a comprehensive aod abuse prevention effort, to provide evidence that the initiative was effective in reducing AOD-related problems, and to propose a work plan for encouraging replication of their efforts. Each grantee institution receives funding to maintain, improve, and further evaluate its efforts and to disseminate information to other campuses where the program might be replicated. A total of 22 institutions received awards under this initiative in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2004. Congress did not fund the program in 2002 or 2003. Additional institutions received awards in 2005 and 2006; findings from those two cohorts are not yet fully known. One grant was awarded in fiscal year 2007. Each campus has publicized its work in the usual ways--presenting at conferences, sponsoring workshops, and distributing brochures and other materials. The agenda for OSDFS's annual National Meeting on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention in Higher Education includes a session for the newest grantees to present on their activities. The primary purpose of this publication is to examine these model programs in order to discover broader lessons for aod prevention practitioners and thereby move the field toward more effective prevention. The authors aim is not merely to describe the model programs but also to explore the general principles and processes by which the grantees successfully implemented their programs, policies, and interventions. Appendices include: (1) Site Visit Interview Protocol; and (2) Characteristics of 22 Institutions of Higher Education With U.S. Department of Education Model Programs (1999-2004). Individual chapters contain references. A list of resources is included. (Contains 4 figures.)

Strategic planning for prevention professionals on campus by Linda Langford( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nation's institutions of higher education continue to face serious problems with respect to student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv). For campus administrators, deciding how to respond effectively means understanding and taking into account both the complexity of these social problems and the individuality of each campus community. There can be no simple answer: Complicated problems require a comprehensive and integrated response, and crafting such a response requires a systematic planning and evaluation process. To support campus leaders addressing aodv problems among their students, this publication describes a strategic planning process for designing, implementing, and refining aodv programs and policies. The planning process described herein is grounded in a prevention approach called "environmental management", which focuses on addressing various factors in the environment that contribute to AODV-related problems. This is not a detailed manual, but a basic introduction to the elements and purposes of sound intervention planning, consistent with the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for prevention programs. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 9 resources.)

Problem analysis : the first step in prevention planning by William DeJong( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv) still reign as the most serious social problems faced by U.S. institutions of higher education. To tackle these problems, campus administrators--working in conjunction with partners from the surrounding community--need to put in place an integrated set of strategies that address the mix of individual, group, institutional, community, and societal factors that lead to student substance abuse and violence. This type of comprehensive approach--called environmental management--cannot be implemented without using a systematic planning and evaluation process. This publication outlines the first step of that process: "problem analysis." This step, often referred to as "needs assessment," is an essential feature of the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for aodv prevention programs. Conducting a problem analysis involves: (1) gathering objective data on the nature and scope of the problem at both national and local levels; (2) examining available resources and assets in the campus community; and (3) analyzing and summarizing this information to clarify needs and opportunities. Note that the process outlined here is suitable for both two- and four-year institutions, including both residential and commuter campuses. (Contains 1 table and 3 resources.)
