Living With Feelings. Teenage Health Teaching Modules.
Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA.
The Teenage Health Teaching Modules (THTM) program is a health education curriculum for adolescents. Each THTM module frames an adolescent health task emphasizing development of self-assessment, communication, decision making, health advocacy, and self-management. The major goals of this module are to promote feelings of self-acceptance in adolescent youths, to develop skills in coping with emotions, and to learn to relate to the feelings of others. Five class activities are outlined, each of which involves a mini-lecture and group discussions. The topics are: (1) the range of feelings and their relationship to the body; (2) coping with and responding to feelings; (3) responses to both positive and troubled feelings; (4) responding to the feelings of others; and (5) feelings and self-acceptance. A list of programs and resources relevant to the module are presented. (JD)
