Instant Session Plans - for Essential Life Skills free pdf This work helps you to meet demands, perhaps at short notice, for provision of appropriate material for work on essential life skills. It also enables you to respond quickly and effectively, when it becomes apparent that a carefully planned programme that you are facilitating will not meet some of the needs that are emerging. This resource-bank of "Instant Session Plans" can enable both inexperienced and experienced facilitators to make 'instant' and timely changes to programme sessions, and respond positively to specific requirements of group members for: coping with the events and situations they face daily- having their personal needs met- and, achieving their ambitions. "Instant Sessions Plans for Essential Life Skills: Relationships" contains: pointers on setting up a group, avoiding discrimination, health and safety, organising sessions, preparing for role-play, homework- an introduction session to use when starting to work with a new group- a session to bring the group to an end- and, 4 sessions on each of these 10 different life skill topics: Communication skills- Relationship skills- Resolving conflicts- Building a support network- Expressing feelings- Making friends- Working with other people- Being part of a team- Networking skills- and, Interview skills. Each session can be used: on its own- as a supplement to other material- as part of a programme of several sessions tailored to meet particular needs- and, as part of a comprehensive course. Each session requires minimum preparation and lasts about one hour. Each contains aims, plans, homework assignments, photocopiable handouts, plus clear step-by-step instructions for the group leader, with timings, for activities that involve participants working as a group, on their own, in pairs and in sub-groups. In addition to these 40 sessions on relationships, there are - in separately published manuals - 40 sessions on self-management, 40 sessions on health and wellbeing, and 40 sessions on learning and development. Visit the website and search on Instant Session Plans for full details, publication dates, and how purchasers of the manuals can subsequently obtain electronic copies of handouts. Suitable for youth workers, therapists, counsellors, social workers, nurses, psychologists, care staff, prison and probation staff, and teachers, this flexible and adaptable 'toolkit' resource has been tried and tested over many years of work with people in diverse groups. It can help facilitators address issues of mental ill health, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, alcohol and drug addiction, anti-social and offending behaviour, and preparing to return to work after a long absence. It can be used in work with young people at the cusp of adulthood, and with adults of all ages. Discussion and practical exercises are related to group members' everyday experiences to make the learning and development both dynamic and enjoyable.
