A Three-Step Approach to Life Discovery
A Three-Step Approach to Life Discovery provides a pathway of self-discovery, self-analysis, and self-development to youth from adolescence to adulthood that will aid them in making positive career choices, setting meaningful life goals, achieving those goals and establishing sound relationships.
Module One answers the question “Who am I?” by allowing the student to use his present vision and perception of himself as identification, but progressively moves him through a process of self-analysis that gives a new and increased view of himself upon completion.
Module Two answers the question “Where am I going?” by directing thought through a process of goal-setting, self-direction, investigation of life choices, selection of a temporary career, and by actually walking through career choices by tapping into positive family, community and peer activities and organizations.
Module Three answers the question “How will I get there?” through student practice and engagement by aligning himself with values that require commitment, acceptance of responsibility, performance of exercises that build self-esteem, exploration of what it means to feel safe and enjoy life, and identification of destructive behaviors and consequences. Self-evaluation occurs at the end of each module, but is an integral part of each module throughout its entirety. Click here to view the program.
