Fostering the Battered and Abused Child: Instructor's Manual.
McFadden, Emily Jean
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 provide a corrective and healing environment for battered and abused 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 procedure, 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 eight class sessions: (1) Orientation/Introduction, (2) Perspectives on Child Abuse, (3) Helping the Battered and Abused Child in Terms of Physical Development, (4) Helping the Battered and Abused Child's Body Image, (5) Helping the Battered and Abused Child's Social and Emotional Development, (6) Alternatives to Physical Discipline, (7) Helping the Battered and Abused Child's Cognitive and Moral Development and (8) Can I Successfully Work with Battered and Abused Children? The story of an abusive parent who joined Parents Anonymous and a brief review of normal child development are appended. References to relevant books, films, and filmstrips are presented. 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. An appendix provides anatomical facts and diagrams. (JMB)
