Your Choice: Skills of Friendship Programme

Shay and Margaret McConnon

Create opportunities for young people to develop skills and their own interpersonal style which will allow them to enjoy positive and successful relationships with others.

The skills involved in relating in a positive way with others do not come easily for some young people. Without help, they will continue to be isolated and rejected because of poor 'friendship skills'.

People are liked, are popular and have friends because they behave in certain ways. Such behaviours are not necessarily 'caught' but can be 'taught'.

Your Choice: Boyfriends, Girlfriends Programme

Shay and Margaret McConnon

Is a programme of structured experiences which aim to educate for sexuality by developing an understanding of, sensitivity to and respect for each individual in the relationship.

Young people often confuse love with sex or physical attraction. Essentially it is friendship, and as such involves risk, self-disclosure, empathy, respect and the other skills involved in relating in a positive way with others.

The book provides a number of opportunities for dialogue between the sexes in which students can learn from each other that sexual difference is not just   biological but psychological, emotional and individual. Such dialogue can lessen the stress and anxiety that young people can experience in relationships with the opposite sex.

Your Choice: The Nature of Friendship Programme

Shay and Margaret McConnon

THE NATURE OF FRIENDSHIP offers a programme of structured experiences which aim to help  students to understand what friendship is and in  particular to explore those qualities  and  behaviours which promote  good relations  between people.

Friends are important. The ability to relate in a positive way with others is important too. People who are unable to do so often experience isolation, rejection  and  suffer from adjustment problems . Studies show that children who fail in relationships are more likely to get into trouble  at school, break the law, and have more mental health  problems when  they  become adults.
