Guiding the Sexual Development of the Foster Child.
One of a series of manuals developed for the Foster Parent Training Project at Eastern Michigan University, this workbook has been developed to assist instructors in presenting to foster parent trainees information on positive adult response to the sexual development of children and youth. In eight sessions foster parents are encouraged to (1) examine the way in which family living leads to the normal, healthy development of sexuality in children, (2) discover that the way in which a family behaves teaches children to behave appropriately as men or women, teaches them appropriate or inappropriate behaviors, and teaches them a set of attitudes and values; (3) understand the different sexual behaviors of children and to learn ways of dealing with "problem behaviors;" and (4) learn to work with "normal children," with "sexually acting out children" and with "sexually abused children" so that the children develop healthy feelings about their own sexuality, understanding of appropriate behaviors, and ability to control their own behavior. 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. (Author/RH)
