Decisions. A Leader's Guide.
Gelatt, H. B.; And Others
This program, "Decisions and Outcomes", was developed as an extension of the junior high program, "Deciding". The new one is intended for senior high school students, college students, and adults and can be used as an extension of "Deciding" or as a substitute for it with older students. The program deals with typical real-life situations faced by many young adults in a variety of settings and situations. The exercises provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about themselves and their peers by helping them learn how to develop and apply decision-making skills. The materials retain the decision-making concept of "Deciding", but the focus of "Decisions and Outcomes" is the utilization, application, and evaluation of information, objectives, and strategies in the context of more complex personal, educational, and career decisions. The program content is divided into four separate sections: the starting point; the deciding self; before deciding; and apply skills. The program emphasizes practice in using decision-making concepts and skills. Role-playing and simulation are important parts of the program. "(Deciding," ED 071 931). (Author/WSK)
