Evaluations of Life Skills Training.
Conger, D. Stuart, Comp.; And Others
Life skills are problem solving behaviors applied appropriately and responsibly in the management of one's life. The purpose of this book is to make available evaluation reports on the use of the life skills course conducted by a variety of organizations. Each evaluation study was based on a different experimental design and in some cases the evaluation was done by the implementer. The evaluation report on the course conducted by Mental Health/Alberta represents one of the most thorough psychometric evaluations of a life skills course to date. The reports in this book indicate some of the variety of applications being made of the life skills course: mental health, probation and housing. Since the purpose of evaluation is to provide information to decision makers whether they be potential adopters, adapters or developers, it is appropriate that this book on life skills evaluation should include a plan for re-developing the life course.
