Human Relations in Training Aides--A Guide for Extension Agents.
Pope, Edward V.
This guide contains information helpful to an extension agent preparing nutrition aides for their visits with low income homemakers. It describes important attitudes and the reasons for them in families with whom the aides will work; and suggests ways to create feelings of trust and respect between aides and family members, and techniques aides can use to set the stage for and improve their teaching. The main emphasis is placed on motivating homemakers to want to improve family living practices. Some of the topics discussed are: helping homemakers feed their families better, overcome loneliness, build self esteem, and gain confidence in themselves; and gaining homemakers' confidence and trust. Reports are included of seven home visits, with suggestions for role playing. This guide supplements PA-681, Training Home Economics Program Assistants to Work with Low Income Families. (AC 002 619).
