Every Child and Family Matters: A Program Prepared for Campus Setting and Community Outreach. Leader's Guide (Experimental Edition).
Salvation Army. New York, NY.
This guide is one of a series of Education for Parenthood manuals developed by the Salvation Army for use in programs to prepare teenagers for parenthood or for child care careers. This volume outlines four courses for troubled girls and young adult women who receive residential care or who may be served through community outreach. The program was designed for a multiple service, campus-type setting, including a group home for adolescent girls, a social rehabilitation facility for young women, and a program for single pregnant girls and new mothers in residence and in the community. The curriculum covers prenatal and postnatal education, practical experience in child care, parenting and self-awareness training, and consumer education. Emphasis is placed on building self-esteem, coping with problems, dealing with authority, and learning about children. (BF)
