Abstract: THE GUIDE IS IN FOUR PARTS: GOALS AND FORMAT; MATERIALS TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS; LISTS OF NATIONAL CONTACTS AND PERTINENT FILMS AND PUBLICATIONS; AND REGIONAL LISTS OF POSSIBLE SPEAKERS, PANELISTS, AND RESOURCE PERSONS. WORKSHOP PLANNERS ARE ADVISED FIRST TO ASSESS THEIR LOCAL SITUATION WITH REGARD TO WOMEN ON PROBATION, IN JAIL OR PRISON, AND IN THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM. ONCE PROBLEM AREAS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED, THE MOST APPROPRIATE WORKSHOP GOAL -- ACTION, PRESENTATION OF FACTS, DEVELOPMENT OF PROJECT IDEAS, DEVELOPMENT OF RECOMMENDATIONS AND AN ACTION PLAN -- CAN BE CHOSEN. POSSIBILITIES FOR FORMAT INCLUDE A KEYNOTE SPEAKER, PANEL PRESENTATIONS, FILMS, SMALL DISCUSSION GROUPS, AND TOURS OF JAILS AND PRISONS. SUGGESTIONS FOR PANELISTS ARE OFFERED. THE CAREFUL SELECTION OF WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS IS STRESSED. PARTICIPANTS SHOULD INCLUDE REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING SPECIALISTS, WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN CONFINED OR WHO ARE ON PROBATION, AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM WOMEN'S, YOUTH, AND COMMUNITY GROUPS. THE FACT SHEET PRESENTS AN OVERVIEW OF THE STATUS OF OFFENDERS. THE PREPONDERANCE OF THE GUIDE CONSISTS OF RESOURCE LISTINGS. (LKM)
