The Dynamics of Life Skills Coaching. Life Skills Series.
Curtiss, Paul R.; Warren, Phillip W.
This book is to be used in a Life Skills Coach Training course. Life skills are defined as problem-solving behaviors appropriately and responsibly used in the management of personal affairs. They apply to the following areas of responsibility: self, family, leisure, community, and job. A course aimed at training people in the life skills implies that such skills are identifiable and describable, that some people already have these skills and can demonstrate them, that others can imitate and apply them. Much of the activity in a life skills course takes place in a learning group composed of about ten students and their learning guide, called a coach. During the course students participate in about 60 lessons which provide pre-planned experiences to which students apply problem-solving techniques. Three process dimensions are involved: student response to content, student use of group, and problem-solving. The lesson model has five phases which suggest the approach used by the coach in presenting the lesson: stimulus, evocation, objective/inquiry/ skills preparation, application, and evaluation.
