Training Foster Parents to Handle Destructive Behavior. 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 destructive behavior 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 the pages found in the trainee workbook are included for four class sessions: (1) Orientation/Introduction, (2) How I Feel About Anger, (3) How to Handle Angry Behavior, and (4) The Development of Self Control in Children. An anecdote to stimulate thinking and discussion about destructive behavior is appended. 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)
