The bulk of the document, pages 30 through 580, consists of lesson outlines for sets of experiences planned to help students meet specified behavioral objectives. The lessons emphasize the practice of problem-solving skills using a formalized system with a wide range of behaviors in content areas ranging from group encounters to self, family, social, leisure, community, and job situations.
