EXPLORING THE BEHAVIOUR AND DEVELOPMENT OF A DELIVERER OF LIFE SKILLS ACTIVITIES: AN AUTO-ETHNOGRAPHIC STUDY
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the present study was to explore the behaviour of a deliverer of life skill activities. Specifically, investigation was carried out to establish if those who deliver life skills activities know what they‘re trying to develop and, as important, are aware of their own personal development. Through adopting an auto-ethnographic approach to the research, the reader is offered insight into the lived experience of an individual immersed within a culture focused upon the development of life skills. Results demonstrate the development of a number of key life skills including: reflection, self-awareness, emotional control, decision-making and communication skills.
