Abstract

A theoretical model for parent education is presented in systems terms, offering criteria of excellence in developing programs beamed at families as open human systems. The study is qualitative and analytical, building a preliminary model by induction from data from the literature and the field, then by deduction formulating propositions and hypotheses for empirical testing. Behavioral objectives and learning processes are derived from examination of the behavioral sciences to determine (1) future relevant characteristics suitable for socialization goals in the post-industrial society, and (2) facilitative strategies for furthering such valued behaviors. The orientation is humanistic, and the sample population broadly middle class.
