A Guidebook for Family Planning Education.
Westinghouse Population Center, Columbia, MD. Health Systems Div.
The purpose of this manual is to provide practical help in designing and improving educational components of family planning programs. It discusses methods and techniques which may be used to assist couples in developing positive attitudes and behavior with regard to family planning--activities which influence how they act, how they feel, and what they know about the subject. It is written for the educational specialist or person responsible for the educational services of a family planning program. The manual is intended only as a general framework for planning. It is, however, specific enough to provide direction in charting an educational plan and in taking some beginning steps toward its implementation. Chapters are titled: Educational Relationships and Distinctions, Planning, Selection of Methods and Materials, Utilization of Methods and Materials, and Selected Sources for Family Planning Information. References following each chapter are provided for in-depth pursuit of particular topics. (BL)
