"Educators Modeling Self-Esteem to At-Risk Students": The Practice of Personal and Professional Development.
Lieb, James Philip
A description is given of the training and inservice plan for Westmoreland County Public Schools (Virginia) which focused on the personal and professional needs of teachers and the issues of the at-risk student population with which they work. A staff self-esteem workshop was developed which focused on the need for persons to care for themselves before they can try to help others. The workshop demonstrated methods of providing self-care, recognizing personally effective strategies to enhance well-being, and developing awareness of self-defeating behavior patterns regarding self-care. A foundation was established for each participant to make a personal commitment to self as an objective for helping students. The workshop also addressed codependency and its application to self-development and the personal development of others, especially at-risk students. The blocks to wellness which arise from this issue were examined. The Westmoreland County Public Schools Special Education Inservice Plan, 1990-91, the preworkshop survey, and a workshop evaluation form are attached. (JD)
