Prevention plus III : assessing alcohol and other drug prevention programs at the school and community level : a four-step guide to useful program assessment by Jean Ann Linney( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This workbook, the third in a series of "Prevention Plus" publications, provides a step-by-step approach to assessing alcohol and other drug prevention programs at the school and community level. Program assessment is presented according to a four-step model: (1) goal and desired outcome identification; (2) process assessment; (3) outcome assessment; and (4) impact assessment. The workbook contains several major sections. The first two sections describe the logic of program assessment, the basic four-step approach to assessment, and the benefits and some of the costs and fears of program assessment and evaluation. The section on prevention describes basic concepts of prevention and discusses problems and recommendations in prevention programming and special considerations in evaluating prevention programs. The section on program assessment plans describes the plan for collecting information about program effectiveness and the degree of confidence with which the information can be interpreted. Pre-program assessment, post-program assessment, and other aspects of program assessment design are discussed. The next two sections on using this workbook provide: (1) an overview of the four-step worksheets and steps in preparing a report; and (2) two examples of program assessment using the worksheet modules. The next, and by far the longest, section is devoted to specific worksheets to be used in evaluating any of 50 types of activities that are commonly used in alcohol and other drug prevention programs. Examples are provided and directions are given for getting started on program assessment. The last section concerns assessment measures; it includes questionnaires and survey instruments that can be used to measure the program outcomes and the impact the reader hopes to achieve from local prevention programs. A list of clearinghouses, specialized information centers of national organizations, and Department of Education Regional Training Centers is included. (Lll)

This document is the first in a series of technical reports concerning the high-risk youth demonstration grants of the Office for Substance Abuse Prevention (osap). The report summarizes the 130 demonstration grants funded in 1987 to develop, test, and evaluate promising approaches for working with high-risk youth. These approaches involve prevention, intervention, and treatment programs for individuals and groups, as well as comprehensive community-wide projects. The project name, agency, contact, target population, project area, and synopses are included for each grantee. In 56% of the grants, the target population is a minority group. Multiethnic groups that include whites are the target group of an additional 41% of the grants. The etiology of alcohol and other drug use and prevention are discussed, with a review of pertinent research. Summaries describe the models used to reduce the prevalence and incidence of alcohol and other drug problems among specific populations. They also present the outcomes expected by grantees and the contributions being made by each program to the prevention field. Summaries are listed in the following categories: (1) Asian/Pacific Islanders; (2) Blacks; (3) Hispanics; (4) Native Americans; (5) White Americans; (6) multiethnic (minority); and (7) multiethnic (including Whites). Two figures, statistical data on six graphs, and a 157-item list of references is included. (Sld)

How to start and run an alcohol and other drug information centre : a guide by Virginia Rolett( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide was designed to help individuals interested in organizing alcohol and other drug information, but who are not trained in library science. It offers basic suggestions for organizing a small collection of alcohol and other drug information using only techniques that do not require the purchase of any specialized equipment or supplies. It begins with a glossary of terms and an introduction that explains what an information center is. Chapter 1 identifies three types of services usually offered by information centers (lending materials, document delivery, and reference services) and suggests activities helpful in providing these services. Chapter 2 focuses on the tasks and duties of the center's professional and clerical staff. Chapter 3 looks at space, furniture, and equipment; chapter 4 considers the focus of the collection and the types of materials in the center; and chapter 5 concentrates on getting materials from local and national sources. Chapters 6 and 7 focus on organization: how to organize the shelves and how to organize the subject files. Chapters 8, 9, and 10 focus on guidelines for providing services, how to promote the center, and evaluation, respectively. A bibliography contains citations for books and articles on running an information center, alcohol and drug periodicals for the basic collection, core reference books and documents, and relevant addresses. The guide concludes with 31 pages of sources of assistance. (Nb)
