Myer, Donna Foster
This instructor's resource guide, one in a series of products from a project to develop an associate degree program for paraprofessional rural family health promoters, deals with teaching a course in interpersonal communication techniques and styles. Covered in the first section of the guide are the role of interpersonal communication in rural health promotional training, general objectives and recommendations for instructors, references, and suggested course texts. A series of unit overviews dealing with the following topics is provided: basic theories and concepts of interpersonal communication, self-knowledge of context and style, skills for one-to-one communication, and communication in special settings (using problem solving skills, communicating in groups, and communicating when the goal is helping). Each unit contains general and specific objectives, a topic outline, instructional notes, and exercises. Concluding the guide are a discussion of methods and materials for student evaluation and a description of other materials in the Family Home Health Training Program series. (MN)
