Instructor's Manual for a Program for Improving the Interpersonal Competence of High School Students.
Lackey, L. L.
This document describes the procedures which were followed in conducting a training program in the Taylor County, Georgia Public School System. The program which was conducted focused on training high school students in performing appropriately assertive behavior in various social situations. In this program, a number of high school students were selected on the basis of their leadership potential and emotional maturity. These students were given assertive training, as well as training and practice in the conduct of discussion groups. This activity constituted Phase I of the project. Phase II consisted of assigning other students volunteering to participate in the training program to discussion groups, each of which had 10-13 members. Each group was led by two of the students who had been trained in Phase I. While the foregoing describes the approach used in the Taylor County project, the material presented in subsequent sections can be modified to fit other requirements. One modification which occurred in the course of this project was an expansion of the initial focus on appropriately assertive behavior to one which included all aspects of interpersonal relations.
