Making Change Happen: Overcoming Barriers to Change. Module 52.
Benjamin, Libby; Walz, Garry R.
This staff development module is part of one of three groups of career guidance modules developed, field-tested, and revised by a six-state consortium coordinated by the American Institutes for Research. This module is designed specifically for school career guidance personnel. The goal of this module is to teach participants how to overcome barriers to change by: (1) acquainting them with a model for overcoming barriers; (2) helping them identify personal and organizational barriers; and (3) assisting them to develop an action plan for overcoming barriers. The module format consists of an overview, goals, objectives, outline, time schedule, glossary, readings, skill development activities, and bibliography. A Coordinator's Guide is also included with detailed instructions for presenting the module in a workshop setting as well as the facilitator's roles and functions, and the criteria used in assessing the participants' achievement of module objectives.
