Helping Health Workers Learn a book of methods, aids, and ideas for instructors at the village level.
Tries to help people analyse and change the situation that surrounds them and provides ideas for instructors at the village level. Part of the value of the book is finding out how to do it for yourself and with others. In Part 1 subjects include looking at learning and teaching and planning a training programme. Part 2 discusses subjects such as making use of teaching aids, role playing, learning to use medicines sensibly and learning to make, take and use pictures. In addition other subjects include the politics of family planning, children as health workers, looking at how human relations affect health and village theatre and puppet shows.
Early drafts of Helping Health Workers Learn were field tested in Latin America, Africa, and the Philippines. From these various field trials we received many helpful ideas and suggestions.
This book is mainly for instructors of village health workers-especially those instructors who are village health workers themselves. But it may be of use to anyone involved in community education.
This book is an invitation to adventure and discovery.
