Back to a Basic in Lifelong Learning: Personal and Small Group Problem Solving.
Owen, Gordon R.
A course for older learners in practical applications of basic interpersonal communication techniques is proposed in this paper. Following a review of the current status of lifelong learning programs, the discussion shifts to a two-part outline of a course designed to train older students in effectively solving both personal and social problems. The first part presents a sequence of techniques for solving interpersonal problems and disagreements on a one-to-one basis. The second part focuses on small group information sharing and problem solving procedures, moving sequentially from problem analysis to causal inquiry to solution advocacy. (RL)
