Helping Youth Decide: A Workshop Guide.
Duquette, Donna Marie; Boo, Katherine
This guide was written to complement the publication "Helping Youth Decide," a manual designed to help parents develop effective parent-child communication and help their children make responsible decisions during the adolescent years. The workshop guide is intended to assist people who work with families to provide additional information and insight on communication and decision making skills. It contains an overview on planning and conducting a workshop which would offer parents a supportive environment to learn and practice new skills while benefiting from the experience of peers and experts. Workshop activity ideas are included. Part 1 outlines seven steps for planning a one-meeting workshop for parents or families. Part 2 offers tips on conducting an effective workshop. Part 3 describes six group activities to promote effective family communication and decision making and includes 24 discussion starter cards for use in the workshop or as homework for parents and youth. A resource list for parents and workshop leaders is provided at the end of the guide. (NB)
