How to Decide: A Guide for Women.
Scholz, Nelle Tumlin; And Others
Designed to meet the changing needs of women by increasing their decision-making ability, this book provides practical exercises and activities which develop and clarify decision-making skills. In addition, it seeks to develop a broader concept of women's roles and emerging life patterns, to awaken women to the spectrum of new possibilities opening to them, and to serve as a catalyst for purposeful planning by women. Chapter 1, Where Are You as a Woman, examines traditional attitudes and ideas which society holds about women. Chapter 2, Who Are You, provides questions and exercises to examine individual values, abilities, interests, and special talents in order to understand how one can use this knowledge in moving toward life goals. Chapter 3, What You Need to Know, presents questions and exercises which develop knowledge of information sources in order to make the most advantageous decisions. Chapter 4, How Do You Take Action, furnishes questions and exercises which set up a program for action in developing alternative career possibilities. Lists of related readings and local women's resource centers are also included. (Author/DE)
