Independence Is.
Stickney, Sharon
This workbook is designed to help participants of the Independence Training Program (ITP) to achieve a definition of "independence." The program was developed for teenage girls. The process for developing the concept of independence consists of four steps. Step one instructs the participant to create an imaginary situation where she is completely independent. After observing the situation carefully, the participant develops her own list of characteristics of independence. The second step involves the participant's imagining another situation where independence is totally lacking. A list of these situational characteristics is then composed. Step three instructs the participant to read lists included in the workbook and written by other women who were describing what independence meant to them. The lists are then compared and if there are points not on the participant's list, she adds them. Step four involves reviewing the three previous lists, and writing down any new ideas. The participants then proceed to discuss the concept they have developed. (JS)
