Everyday we make decisions about various aspects of life, although some tend to be "automatic" and others require more thought. This book offers a course that teaches the skills for making satisfactory decisions and is of particular relevance for young people who are experiencing greater freedom for the first time and are making decisions about health, money, examinations, relationships, careers, politics and religion. Besides teaching the skills of decision-making, this book attempts to provide opportunities for students to apply this process to real-life situations. Students are encouraged to take more control of their lives by taking responsibility for making considered and informed decisions. The first strategy helps the student become aware of the extent and range of decisions to be made. Strategies two to three help to evaluate different styles of decision-making and identify the skills that are important in each one. The skills of gathering information, clarifying values and generating alternative solutions are exmained in detail as essential steps in the decision-making process. In the following strategies students use acquired skills to make an informed and considered decision about smoking, alcohol, illicit drugs and career options. In conclusion, this book aims to help students achieve greater personal effectiveness. An evaluation of the students' response to this course is included at the rear of this book.
