New resources from the Family Education Trust

Family Education Trust
Norman Wells from the Family Education Trust has contacted us with details of some new resources:

THE SOBER TRUTH is a full-colour leaflet presenting accurate information on alcohol in an attractive and accessible format. In straightforward language, it refers to twelve ways in which alcohol misuse causes serious problems for teenagers, their families and society as a whole. This timely leaflet goes on to explain what alcohol is and how it affects the brain, and concludes with some practical tips to help young people develop responsible attitudes towards its use.

The Sober Truth is a companion leaflet to our popular titles, What is Love? and Why Save Sex? Sample printed copies of all three titles are available on request. Prices for quantities of the leaflets are: £4.50 (25 copies); £7.00 (50 copies); £13.00 (100 copies); £30.00 (250 copies); £55.00 (500 copies); £100.00 (1,000 copies). All prices include p&p.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF MARRIAGE is an online teaching resource, written by experienced educator, John de Waal. In twelve short chapters, it traces the history of marriage from the ancient world of Egypt, Greece and Rome down to the present day. Along the way, it interacts with the disciplines of literature, theology, philosophy, psychology, politics and sociology in clear and accessible prose.

The brief history has been written out of the conviction that when people fail to appreciate the nature of marriage and the immense contribution it has made to human societies throughout history, they will cease to value it. This short but wide-ranging and attractively-illustrated account of the history of marriage from the ancient world of Egypt, Greece and Rome down to the present day, will help young people to recognise the vital part that lifelong marriage has to play in creating stable families and a well-ordered society.

Each section concludes with several questions which are designed to stimulate further thought and provide a basis for group discussion. The full text is available for free download from the Family Education Trust website.

Have a look at the Family Education Trust website for details of these and other resources.
