3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
The second of two reports on the tops Program (Teaching Outreach Prevention School), a group work approach for emotionally disturbed elementary students, describes tops' parent training and support groups. Reasons for parent groups are discussed, particularly for parents of children with emotional handicaps. Techniques for motivating parents are noted, including providing opportunity for information sharing and suggestion giving. The thrust of the approach is said to be allowing parents to understand their child's behavior patterns and to help them handle the problems. Objectives and goals of parent training are presented along with the agenda for six sessions which focus on discipline, behavior management, and assertiveness training. Appended is a paper by S. Berkowitz, "ABC's of Behavior Modification." (Cl)
Childrens̓ group manual : TOPS program, a school/mental health cooperative by Arline Loewenstein( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
The first of two booklets on the tops Program (Teaching Outreach Prevention School), a school/mental health cooperative project, describes the operation of group work for elementary aged children with emotional and behavioral problems. Goals are said to include increasing the students' feelings of acceptance, caring, and support as well as modeling appropriate social behavior as a group member. Group operation is outlined, along with limit setting procedures and techniques (such as puppets and relaxation) that have proven successful. Desirable therapist qualities are listed, such as the ability to be comfortable with conflicts and to remain marginal to the group but available for help. Tops is explained to use a structured behavioral management system in which children are helped to internalize controls. (Cl)

A Study of dropouts : Dade County, Florida public schools, 1960-1963 by Jonathan Gillingham( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
A group of 5,000 students from grades seven through ten were studied. Findings suggest that the general reason for dropping out was disinterest in school. On the average, the dropout had failed three subjects--74 percent were retarded in one or more grades. The dropout was a poor reader, and his scholastic aptitude level was low. He did not work after school, nor did he participate in extra-curricular activities. He came from a low socioeconomic area, usually from a broken home, and the educational level of his parents was low. To meet the needs of potential and returning dropouts, numerous recommendations made included--a flexibility of scheduling, an expansion of work-study programs, the development of a home contact program, the selection of teachers sympathetic to student needs, the initiation of plans for the inservice training of teachers, the development of a special program in reading, the provision of special tutoring, encouragement for students to participate in school activities, and the establishment of parent-teacher conferences. Agencies and community leaders should plan projects to supplement the work of the school and home in stimulating the potential dropout to expand his interest and improve his skills

Eleven lessons in drug abuse education for use in junior high school science by Dade County Public Schools( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Eleven lessons for use in junior high school science present two major themes: (1) the use of tobacco, alcohol, and narcotics represents a serious danger to the health of individuals and to national welfare in general; and (2) the best way to combat dangers involved in the use of tobacco, alcohol, and narcotics is through an educated public. Each lesson is accompanied by references to texts and visual aids, learning activities, teacher information, and assessment items. The eleven lessons are: "Stimulants and narcotics are habit-forming drugs; The use and abuse of drugs has brought about the need for legal controls; Nicotine contains many harmful chemicals; Smoking irritates the eyes, reduces appetite, affects digestion, causes shortness of breath, and lowers endurance; Many studies exist which indicate that smoking may encourage the development of cancer in the lungs and other respiratory difficulties; Alcohol, acting as a depressant, affects the nervous system, slows down reaction time, and causes loss of coordination; Regular and excessive drinking of alcohol may result in a disease called alcoholism; Narcotics should be used only as prescribed by a physician; Victims of a drug habit become physically and mentally ill; The use of drugs is one of the most difficult habit to break; and a concerned person takes care of his body at all times."
