A seminar on family life education provided an opportunity for 51 participants, the majority of whom were women, from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, the Republic of South Africa, and Swaziland, to meet and discuss professional problems with colleagues involved in family life education (FLE). The objectives of the seminar were to: (1) develop a family life infrastructure in southern Africa; (2) bring teachers' organizations into contact with all associations dealing with family life education; and (3) raise the quality of life of the region's people. This report includes the recommendations and highlights of the discussions. The topics discussed were: the areas of concern and approaches for establishing a family life program; the role of the teacher; ways in which the teacher can promote a clearer understanding among education officials of the need for family life education; ways in which the teacher can work with the community to promote acceptance of family life education; and suggestions for teachers on ways to include family life education in the curriculum. Training needs are identified. (JD)
