Oklahoma Child Development Associate Curriculum: Behavior and Guidance. Revised Edition.
Loveless, Susan Catlett; And Others
Guidance techniques for use with children are discussed in this set of training materials, part of an overall curriculum for Child Development Associate trainees. Topics presented include the following: (1) principles of human behavior according to such theories as psychoanalysis, humanistic psychology, and social learning theory; (2) common behavior problems in children, with a focus on types and severity of problems; (3) guidance in the child's early years, formulated around the principles of affection, respect, help, and approval; (4) direct and indirect guidance techniques; (5) the importance of self-understanding on the part of teachers; and (6) reasons for failure of guidance techniques when environmental and/or personal factors are mismanaged. The objectives of this curriculum guide are to enable trainees to distinguish between accidents and misbehavior among preschoolers, to select guidance techniques appropriate for the individual child, to identify problems requiring professional help, and to use a variety of positive guidance and discipline techniques.
