Looking In: Exploring One's Personal Health Values.
Read, Donald A.
This workbook deals with values clarification strategies in the area of health education. It is designed to serve as a tool for expanding self awareness. The underlying assumption is that cognitive knowledge is only half of what is necessary for understanding one's own feelings and making decisions about such potential life problems as drugs, sex, racism, environmental conditions, and so forth--the other half involves exploring gut reactions. Numerous classroom-tested exercises deal with such topical issues as drugs, physical fitness, consumer health, nutrition, sex, drugs, disease, accidents, environmental health, aging and death. It is hoped that the reader will be confronted with a need to look at his or her own behavior, to consider unproductive or unhealthy behavior, and to consider ways of changing. (MM)
