Getting It All Together (GIAT): Teaching Human Relationships and Communication Skills in Nursing Homes.
Dickman, Irving R.
The purpose of this booklet is to offer some guidelines for inservice educators who are interested in teaching human relationships and communication skills in nursing homes. Getting It All Together (GIAT) was developed for people to improve their basic communication skills through a new approach to communication and interpersonal relationships. It consists of a series of inservice discussion sessions which focus on the individual facets of human relationship. These sessions have been divided into six categories: Listen!, See!, Speak!, Touch!, Cherish!, and The Sound of Silence. The sessions are summarized in the final chapter. Each contains general notes for the inservice educator, lesson plans of the overall objectives, teaching methods and feedback/evaluation. Appended to the document are two appendixes--a partially-annotated 12-page bibliography, and sample reaction forms. (Author/BP)
