This user-friendly guide is designed to enhance implementation of an EQUIP training program. A copy of the EQUIP program book is required to conduct the program. The implementation guide was produced in response to the needs of busy practitioners and provides a collection of reproducible program forms, student handouts/ worksheets, and guidelines for group leaders and administrators. It presents step-by-step guidelines for conducting Mutual-Help and Equipment Meetings and for training and motivating staff and group members. It is also useful in developing a comprehensive program statement and in establishing successful operating procedures.
