The Children of Alcoholics Project (COAP) offers a preschool curriculum designed to increase the survival skills of children of alcoholics and help these children adjust to problems in an alcoholic home. The program goals address cognitive, social and emotional, and physical development. Children are selected for the program based on identification by social workers, teachers, or parents. The curriculum is presented in 10 sessions. In Session I, children are given factual information about alcohol. Session II is designed to help children talk about their feelings. Session III teaches children to become aware of hidden anger and vent anger in appropriate ways. Chilren's self-esteem is strengthened in Sessions IV and VIII. In Session V, children are given information about the differences and similarities among families. Session VI teaches children safety practices for use during incidents of family violence. Physical health and relaxation are encouraged in Session VII, and instruction on nutrition is provided in Session IX. Session X provides closure for the series of sessions. References are cited for some of the sessions. Appendixes include a facilitator's guide, parent involvement handouts, guidelines and materials for art activities, and a user's evaluation form. (BC)
