Family Life Education: A Problem-Solving Curriculum for Adolescents (Ages 15-19).
Feibelman, Barbara; Hamrick, Michael
The rising incidence of teenage sexual activity and the subsequent growth in numbers of teenage parents provide the rationale for this problem-solving curriculum guide on family life education. This model curriculum for adolescents aged 15-19 is designed to promote problem-solving skills, self-confidence, self-awareness, self-control, and knowledge. The curriculum activities, emphasizing individual and/or small group participation, are structured to identify the influences of parents, peers, media, and various socio-educational institutions on the overall development of a healthy sexuality by focusing on: (1) developing a positive self-concept; (2) developing a sexual identity; (3) developing relationships with parents and other adults; (4) developing peer relationships; (5) preparing for marriage and parenthood; and (6) examining health-related issues. Additionally, five trigger films are available to complement the curriculum guide activities. (Author/KMF)
