Breaking Barriers: A Workshop Series in Human Relations Skills Based Upon Liberated Parents/Liberated Children. (Experimental Edition - Revised).
Faber, Adele; Mazlish, Elaine
This is one of a series of Education for Parenthood manuals developed for use in Salvation Army demonstration programs in parenthood education. This guide presents discussion plans for eight workshop sessions based on the book, "Liberated Parents/Liberated Children." The course was designed to help teenagers (1) become aware of typical negative patterns of adult/child verbal communication (blaming, sarcasm, lecturing, etc.) and (2) learn to communicate effectively with young children by using language which builds, rather than undermines, their self-esteem. The course is recommended for use with groups of 8 to 10 members in 1 1/2 hour sessions. Workshop sessions are entitled: (1) The Effects of Unhelpful Communication; (2) Practice in Helpful Communication; (3) Accepting Feelings; (4) Autonomy; (5) Different Types of Praise; (6) Assigning Roles; (7) Expressing Anger; and (8) Review of Communication Skills. It is recommended that opportunities to work with children be arranged for group members whenever possible. (BF)
