Kelly, F. Donald; Chick, Joyce M., Ed.
This self-instructional module, one volume of a series of competency-based modules in human relations skills for occupational specialists, is designed to help the specialist better understand the nature of children's behavior and the processes that both impede and facilitate the development of constructive attitudes and behavior patterns for work and life. Other modules in this set of three are Basic Counseling for Personal Concerns for the Occupational Specialist, and Basic Vocational Counseling Skills for the Occupational Specialist. The module provides a prospectus, which details objectives and explains how to use the module; a flow-chart, which illustrates the self-instructional process; a pre-assessment quiz; and a work plan in chart form. Instructional activities (reading assignments and learning activities) are listed for each of the 8 enabling elements or lessons. The enabling elements deal with roles of the occupational specialist in counseling parents, children's misbehavior, assessing a problem behavior sequence, punishment, natural consequences, encouragement, barriers to effective communication, and horizontal communiation. Each lesson includes a self-test; a post-assessment covering the entire module and a bibliography complete the booklet. (JAC)
