Audiovisual Resources for Family Programming.
Jordan, Barbara; Stackpole, Noreen
This directory contains annotated descriptions and source information for more than 1,700 nonprint items on topics of interest to parents, parent educators, social workers, school and community groups, and librarians developing collections on family resources. The directory consists mainly of videotapes but also includes games, kits, audiocassettes, and workshop and program curricula. It is arranged in alphabetical order by title, with subject and series indexes. Items appropriate to several subject areas are listed more than once. The collection of items listed covers the entire range of parenting, child development, and child rearing topics, from pregnancy and childbirth through the adolescent years, including family challenges such as death and divorce, blended family living, substance abuse, adoption, foster care, and the struggle to balance work and family life. Videos focused on youth include such topics as school issues, decision making, self-esteem, anger and conflict management, sexuality education, substance abuse prevention, and life skills development. The directory also contains many titles that are especially valuable for parents of children with disabilities and chronic health problems, addressing specific health and disability issues as well as the challenge of parenting children with special needs.
