Parenting for Yourself and Your Child. A Parenting Curriculum for High Risk Families. Neglectful and Abusive Parents: Curriculum Development and Pilot Program. Final Report.
Developed for use by parent educators and others working with high risk, abusive, or neglectful families, this curriculum guide is intended to enable and facilitate the growth of this target population in key parenting learning and skill areas. Section 1 provides an overview of the manual, offers suggestions for home visits following each class session, and details classroom procedures and techniques. Section 2 is the curriculum guide with materials for 10 sessions on self-esteem, communications (2 sessions), the past and change, child development, anger, guidance, discipline, stress, and resources. Each session is a self-contained unit with class objectives, a class outline, preclass preparation requirements, and activities for the session with time estimates. Teachers' notes provide directions and comments for leading the activity and facilitating discussion. The text is written so that it can be taught verbatim. An appendix to each session includes supplements, class handouts for duplication, a bibliography, a resource list, in-class homework assignments, the home lesson activity, and a home visit information sheet. Section 3 contains resources on child abuse and neglect. Two monographs are included to give instructors understanding and insight into abusive and neglectful parents. Various materials from the Council for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect are also provided. (YLB)
