The Dynamics of Relationships. A Guide for Developing Self Esteem and Social Skills for Teens and Young Adults. Teacher's Manual [Revised.]
This teacher's manual was prepared for the program and curriculum, "The Dynamics of Relationships," Carl Roger's dream of what education should be. The program is meant to employ a preventive approach to many of the social problems affecting young people today; it was designed to help students (teens and young adults) develop a strong self-image, effective communication skills, strong coping skills, realistic expectations, and a clearer understanding of what is necessary to make relationships work. The teacher's manual, which contains the student text in its entirety, also contains a teacher introduction and supplementary teaching materials. The manual contains various activities for each of the 24 chapters (Self-Esteem, Communication, Anger and Conflict, Sex and Gender Roles, Friendship, Affection and Touching, Love, Jealousy, Expectations, Dating, Single Life, Selecting a Partner, Living Together, Marriage Preparation, Intermarriage, Marriage, Separate but Equal Identity, Power, To Be or Not To Be Parents, When Baby Makes Three, Dual Income, Sexuality, Alternative Sexual Lifestyles, and Alternative Lifestyles), plus review and discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Also included are various experiential exercises and teacher activities that can be used in conjunction with each chapter, as well as a list of songs, resource materials, and contacts to further assist teachers. Because the program was designed to be non-structured, specific lesson plans or designated time periods for individual chapters are not given. A glossary of terms is included. (NB)
