Thurston, Linda P.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v7 n3 p313-26 2002
Evaluated a life skills management program for rural youth delivered via collaboration between education and noneducation agencies. The program was replicated with 10 groups of Tennessee and Missouri youth. Pre- and post-testing of knowledge of life skills management concepts, self-esteem, and social skills indicated the program changed participants' attitudes and behaviors. Performance and generalization of skills in natural settings were demonstrated. (SM)
