Training Manual for Human Relations Volunteers.
Gitomer, Nancy L.
This manual is part of a series of human relations programs designed to help individuals develop a sense of self worth and an awareness, understanding, and appreciation of human differences. The stress in these programs is on providing each individual with a model through which to evaluate his own actions and emotions. In this manual, communication skills, values clarification, effective listening, and the ability to deal with diverse value systems are among the qualities stressed in the training of group leaders. Flexibility is said to be the key to effectiveness as a leader. Although it is emphasized that these Green Circle programs can be used with persons of any age, they were originally designed for elementary school children. Thus, the training manual concentrates on the development of skills in elementary school teachers and others working with young children. It includes a section on adapting Green Circle for other age groups, a unit on evaluation, a list of bibliographical references and a list of materials available from the Green Circle program.
