Social Development Training Project. Stage I and Stage II. [The Granville Project].
Riches, Vivienne C., Ed.
The book presents a training program developed at the Granville Work Preparation Centre in Australia, to teach mildly retarded adolescents basic social skills and competencies. The program is divided into two stages, with a total of 17 different skill areas. Stage 1 covers self-awareness, social/interpersonal skills, relaxation and behavioral self management, assertiveness training, communication behavior and work role demands, friendship, and hygiene and grooming. Stage 2 covers self management, sex education, citizenship, community resources, leisure and recreation, health and grooming, on-the-job communication, and vocational independence/work role demands. Also included in Stage 2 are sections offering additional training in social skills and assertiveness training. Each skill area in the program is broken down by subskill into separate units, which in turn are broken down into lesson sessions. Lists of lesson objectives, content, and methods are provided, along with brief summaries of skill components, where applicable. Included in the appendixes are a copy of a payment incentive scheme used at the Granville center, and a copy of the form used to evaluate the progress of their students. (DLS)
