De-Institutionalization: Managing Independent Living. An Adult Education Program for Incarcerated Women in Transition.
Thomas, Ruth G.; And Others
This program manual provides materials for implementation of a Managing Independent Living Program for adult female offenders in a state residential facility. It also can be adapted appropriately for other institutionalized populations experiencing a transition to more independent community living and for non-institutionalized persons encountering a new level of independence. Introductory materials describe the target population, program goals and objectives, eligibility for participation, and participant and program evaluation. Information on program implementation covers organization, personnel, facilities, materials, schedule, cost, advisory committee, and community resources. The curriculum section first describes the decision-making and management process structures and then provides the curriculum, which is arranged from left to right across two pages. The left page contains process components, generalizations supporting the process components, and instructional objectives. The right page contains goal guides that describe specific student behaviors corresponding to the process components, suggested learning activities, and references for student materials. Curriculum is provided for 16 hours of group instruction and for individualized instruction sessions in three problem areas: career and life planning, housing, and consumer goods and services. Other materials are an annotated bibliography and community resources directory. Program forms are appended. (YLB)
