Adolescent Development: A Course for the Child Care Worker.
This instructor's manual presents a course designed to help the child care worker gain a better understanding of normal adolescent development, by focusing on adolescent behavior and developmental tasks, and by exploring ways in which adolescents may accomplish these developmental tasks. The manual is divided into four sessions which may involve 1 to 2 hours each, or which may be presented in a 1-day workshop format. The format for the sessions consists of a lecturette, followed by a series of exercises which may be used with the total group, with individuals, or with small groups of three to six persons. The session topics include adolescent behavior, developmental tasks, physical and sexual maturation, establishing independence and autonomy, peer relationships, and forming a personal identity. Instructor materials and color-coded handouts for participants are included in the manual. (MCF)
