Goal X: Preparing for a Changing World--Coping With Change. A Guide to Intervention Techniques for the Development of Problem-Solving and Coping Skills.
Hertzog, James F.
This publication defines an approach and lists some possible materials to help students develop problem-solving and coping skills. It is a preliminary guide serving as a background for those wishing to learn more about this area. It stresses definitions and sources, not specific strategies. Different sections focus on kindergarten teachers, elementary teachers, secondary teachers, counselors, parents, psychologists, and teacher trainers. After a brief section giving background and definitions for various problem-solving and coping concepts, a number of selected methods and programs are outlined. Some are targeted toward special populations, such as kindergartners or hyperactive children. Others deal with specific topics such as understanding feelings or coping with change. Teacher training programs and a bibliography conclude the publication, so that those interested in pursuing the subject in more detail can do so. (Author/BP)
