Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Being a Special Person - Unit for Adults. Leaders Guide.
Finley, Cathaleen; Thompson, Marian
This leaders' guide is for use in group sessions or individual meetings with parents of girls participating in the Choices & Careers: Free to Choose program. It is based upon units the girls study, including "The Outside You,""Your Money,""Food and You,""Alcoholism,""Coping with Parents," and "Life Span Planning." Each section of the document features learning experiences such as discussions, programs, questionnaires, games, and other activities that are based on specific objectives. These objectives include: (1) helping young girls learn to develop their inner abilities rather than focusing on the external aspects of themselves; (2) learning to manage their financial resources in a reasonable manner; (3) understanding the importance of adequate nutrition; (4) recognizing the signs of alcoholism and understanding how it can be treated; (5) reducing family conflict with a mutual understanding by teenagers and parents of the changes that occur as girls grow up; and (6) helping girls plan for their whole life span. Specific information on developing a positive self concept is also included. (Author/DS)
