Life Skills for Women in Transition.
Hunt, Margaret; Munro, Constance
This reference book is designed for participants in a workshop or course series for women who are newly independent or involved in other life transitions. The contents of each topic are presented through narratives, group exercises, individual tasks, discussions, and use of specific resources. The first unit covers the concerns faced by a woman on her own, e.g., assertiveness, conflict, stress, coping, and money. Other topics include education, career exploration, job seeking, and family communication, with a special emphasis on the value of peer counseling. The guide provides basic information about important topics in women's lives and suggests strategies for coping with problems and changes as well as giving women the confidence to initiate changes in lifestyle and relationships.
