Learning to Live: A Description and Discussion of an Inductive Approach to Training describes the general approach to training young people. This book discusses the difficulties encountered by those who have responsibility for training in youth service, with emphasis on the communication of Christian faith. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the inductive approach to training whereby one starts from experience and observation as in the scientific approach. This text then describes the process of inductive training, which starts from the experience of those being trained wherein the experience is identified, shared, examined, and tested against the experience of others. Other chapters examine the various stages in training, including becoming a group member, choosing an agenda, opening up the question, highlighting the problem, and evaluating the conclusions. This book is intended to be suitable for readers who find themselves responsible for the training of young people.
