Training Foster Parents to Handle Lying and Stealing. Instructor's Manual.
This manual, one of a series of manuals developed for the Foster Parent Training Project at Eastern Michigan University, was designed to assist instructors in presenting course content to foster parents on how to deal with problems of lying and stealing in their foster children. The introductory section presents information for the instructor on aspects of classroom dynamics (such as principles for teaching adults, choosing the physical facilities, classroom arrangement, establishing good classroom procedures, and teaching techniques) that the project staff has found successful in working with foster parents. Instructor's materials and copies of pages from the trainee workbook are included for four class sessions: (1) Orientation/Introduction, (2) What Dishonesty Means to Me, (3) Teaching Children to Behave Honestly and (4) The Development of Conscience in Children. An introduction to the instructor's manual is provided. In the lesson material instructions to the instructor are on colored paper. White pages are copies of the trainee manual. Instructor's material on these pages is in red ink. A skit to stimulate thinking about dishonesty is appended. (JMB)
