A Developmental History of the Georgia Life Skills for Mental Health Program.
Strandmark, John F.; Dusewicz, Russell A.
A developmental history of the Georgia Life Skills for Mental Health program is presented. The program's purpose is to help students aged 5-18 learn ways to handle stress, make major life decisions, and form more satisfying interpersonal relationships. In addition to a narrative description of how the program was conceived and developed, the report contains, in various appendices, the major documents generated during the developmental phase of the program. The purpose of the report is threefold: (1) to document, through the use of files and selected interviews, the development of the Life Skills Program from its inception in the Winter of 1976 to June 30, 1978; (2) to offer sets of objectives and desired outcomes which will be useful in establishing evaluative criteria and developing instrumentation; and (3) to provide a context for later interpretation of process and outcome evaluative findings.
