PREPARATION FOR SUCCESSFUL ADULT LIFE.
GATCHEL, MARY H.
THIS REPORT PRESENTS IN CHRONOLOGICAL SEQUENCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GROUP-GUIDANCE PILOT STUDY IN NORMAN HIGH SCHOOL, NORMAN, OKLAHOMA. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT IN THE 1964-65 SCHOOL YEAR WAS TO USE THE SCHOOL COUNSELING STAFF AND COMMUNITY CONSULTANTS IN A STUDY OF AREAS OF PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. IT WAS HOPED THAT STUDENTS IN SUCH A GROUP WOULD GAIN KNOWLEDGE IN BOY-GIRL RELATIONSHIPS AND SELF-UNDERSTANDING TO BETTER PREPARE THEM FOR ADULT LIFE. AFTER A SCHOOL-WIDE QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH SHOWED THAT 92 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS FAVORED SUCH A PROGRAM, 29 BOYS AND GIRLS WERE SELECTED ON A VOLUNTEER BASIS. THE PROGRAM CONSISTED OF PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSION SESSIONS ON (1) EMOTIONS, (2) THE FUNCTIONS AND NEEDS OF THE BODY, (3) DATING, (4) MARRIAGE, AND (5) MORAL AND SPIRITUAL CODES IN BOY-GIRL RELATIONSHIPS. STUDY SHEETS OF QUESTIONS WERE GIVEN TO THE STUDENTS BEFORE EACH SESSION TO PROVIDE STIMULUS FOR FURTHER QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSION. EXAMPLES OF THESE STUDY SHEETS AND THE STUDENTS' QUESTIONS ARE PRESENTED. AT A FINAL EVALUATION SESSION, 27 OF THE 29 STUDENTS INDICATED ON AN ANONYMOUS QUESTIONNAIRE THAT THE PROGRAM SHOULD BE OFFERED TO ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. (NS)
