Abidin, Richard R.
This manual, developed as part of the performance-based Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program, is a trainer's manual for teaching parenting skills. Each module or set of modules presents effective skills for managing and changing behaviors of adults and children. Several profession strategies and theoretical orientations are represented, including client-centered humanistic psychology, rational emotive psychology and behavioristic psychology. In each module the trainer is given objectives, materials needed, procedures for facilitating discussion, pertinent literature references, and directions for homework assignments. Three courses are outlined which combine sessions on the following topics: developing sensitivity, building effective parent-child relationships, and using various behavior modification techniques. Optional sessions on developing the child's intelligence, special education, and helping the child with homework are also included. (ED)
