Doris Marshall Inst. for Education and Action, Toronto (Ontario).; Education Wife Assault, Toronto (Ontario).
This manual provides materials for a 6-day workshop for immigrant women working on the issue of woman abuse; it is intended to help them do their own programs in their own language out of their own cultural context. Objectives of the course are as follows: to increase educator skills and confidence in (1) developing learning activities and using available resources; (2) designing new community education programs on the issue of woman abuse/wife assault; and (3) facilitating group activities that draw on participants' experiences, introduce information, analyze problems and issues, and develop action plans. Section A is a broad overview of the course, its objectives, and the assumptions on which it was based. Section B details each day or stage of the course. For each stage, these components are provided: a restatement of the objectives and agenda for each session, brief description of the process, task sheets for the activities used, detailed explanations of some activities, and the material produced by the participants. Session titles are as follows: What's It All About; Surveying the Terrain; Ten Finger Typing: Activities and Tools; Designing an Activity and Workshop Model; On Stage: The Practice of Facilitation; and Covered Ground and Next Steps. The final section summarizes the methods of evaluation built into the course. (YLB)
