Collier, Helen V.; And Others
This manual is for a developmental workshop for 12-18 women that uses didactic and experiential techniques to train participants to make freer educational and career choices. It contains four parts. Part 1, for the workshop administrator, overviews the nature of the workshop and provides information necessary for publicizing, organizing, operating, and evaluating the workshop. A "Schedule Checklist" concludes the section. Part 2, for workshop leaders, summarizes the curriculum and suggests strategies appropriate to the subject matter and to different kinds of learners. It concludes with a resources section of demographic data, references cited, and suggested readings. Part 3, also for workshop leaders, consists of the curriculum, providing an hour-by-hour description of each of the workshop's six two-hour units. Unit titles are Woman and Sex-Role Stereotyping of Self, Devaluing Ourselves, Lowered Aspirations, Power: New Alternative Styles for Women, Building Support Systems and Networks, and Behavior Change and Implementation. Each unit contains an introduction, objectives, worksheets, unit activities, variations in response to unit, and further readings.
