Parent-Child Communication. Workshop Models for Family Life Education.
Riley, Donald P.; And Others
This manual provides leader guides for six workshop sessions for parents who wish to improve their communication and problem solving skills. Session I emphasizes that behavior is a sign of an underlying feeling and that parents should look for signs of feelings in the actions of their children. Session II stresses the importance of sensitive listening and responding. Sensitive expression of ideas is explored in Session III. Sessions IV and V provide a problem solving method and practice exercises which allow parents to develop their listening and expressive skills. Session VI consists of review, discussion and evaluation activities. Handouts for each workshop session are included and home practice exercises are indicated. The manual is designed as a general guide for conducting parent-child communication workshops and as an aid in training and supervision. This volume is one of a series intended to promote the exploration of new alternatives and the utilization of new options in day-to-day living through programs in family life education. (Author/RH)
