Life Skills Coach Training Manual.
Saskatchewan NewStart, Inc., Prince Albert.
Ways of helping coaches to counsel unemployed adults in the solving of their personal problems are explored in this manual. Originally printed as two separate volumes, this reprinting of the study has bound the two together. Volume I involves a general discussion of life's problems and of the need to solve them. This volume contains four parts. Part 1 discusses problem-solving practice in a group situation and probes into the problem-solving practice as a whole. A self-test for counselors is included at the end of Part 1. Part 2 deals with individual behaviours, both helpful and harmful, in the group situation. Part 3 covers useful techniques for the coach to use in his counseling activities, including such activities as brainstorming and role playing. Part 4 discusses personal development in the problem-solving groups, such as opportunities and responsibilities of the group member and the acquiring of problem-solving skills. Volume II refers back to Volume I and contains Parts 5 through 6F. Part 5 covers the life skills coaching process and discusses the learning of life skills and the process of behaviour change. Part 6 examines six important coaching activities: motivating, planning, informing, leading discussions, counseling and evaluating. Seven appendices are included. (CK)
