Getting Set for Success.
Santa Rita, Emilio
These career development materials consist of three booklets: the text, success portfolio, and facilitator's guide. Unit 1 in the text tests the students' coping skills. Contracts in the success portfolio for this unit enable the student to determine the sources of stress and ways of coping; describe different procedures for managing time; assess sources and ways of coping with depression; recognize and practice assertive behavior; and define a problem, seek alternatives, and implement a plan. The focus of Unit 2 is understanding self, particularly the positive and negative supports to constructive personal and interpersonal behavior. Contracts in the success portfolio enable the student to increase self-regard and self-acceptance; use strategies to overcome self-defeating behavior; understand the importance of taking charge of college life; explore according to Maslow's ladder of values the needs that impel the student to achieve in college; and explore ego states of parent, adult, and child in self as the student relates to instructors and classmates. Unit 3 focuses on career awareness. Contracts in the success portfolio enable the student to develop a value, interest, and ability profile, and follow the steps toward planful decision-making and goal setting. For each unit the facilitator's guide outlines the lesson plan and provides answers to the case problems discussed at the end of each chapter. (LLL)
