Valuing Families. Activity Guide.
Glashagel, Jerry; Glashagel, Char
Developed as a resource for family life education, this activity guide can be used to lead experiential learning situations for intergenerational groups by a counselor, in a course, in a family organization like the YMCA, or in the home. The goals of this guide are to increase the self-esteem of each person and to strengthen the family as a human support system. A short section explains values and valuing, and some ground rules are suggested for use when conducting activity units. Twenty-three activity units are provided, which cover the following topics: achievement, sharing and caring, respect, self-awareness, and aids and escapes. The objectives, process, materials, and total time needed are given for each activity. Materials are included in the booklet and can also be found in the home. An explanation is the Photo Story activity for which photographs are supplied that cannot be reproduced, however, pictures can be clipped from magazines as a replacement. All of the activities can be altered easily to meet specific needs. The guide concludes with a short section on alcoholism, giving common sayings or myths and the actual facts for each one. (ND)
