Therapy Today - Promoting wellbeing through compassion

Therapy Today - Promoting wellbeing through compassion | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it

Research suggests that teaching people to develop self-compassion can reduce shame and self-criticism, as well as lead to improvements in other psychiatric symptoms

 

It’s hard to think of any talking therapy that doesn’t assume the importance of practising with compassion, and at the very least we are all familiar with Rogers’ core conditions of unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence. ...

 

CFT in practice
Chris Irons is a clinical psychologist who works for a mental health team in East London and was supervised by Gilbert. ‘I have been using CFT as my overarching model clinically for about six years with a broad base of clients including severe and chronic depression, trauma and enduring mental health problems. Sometimes just working with the formulation alone can be very powerful and it can be fascinating to see how patients depict the sizes of the circles with pen and paper – with the “threat circle” being huge, the drive system small, and the soothing system a tiny dot.’

Have We Lost The Art Of Storytelling In Marketing?

Have We Lost The Art Of Storytelling In Marketing? | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it

"As the buzz about content marketing, social media and all things digital continues to rise, one of the catch phrases that gets a lot of attention is storytelling in marketing. We afford it incredible lip service but do we actually practice it?"


Hmmmm -- good question. Here the author, Drew McLellan asks if in previous decades business was better at storytelling in its marketing and advertising.

 

Makes you think. Drew includes 3 videos to make his point. The first is a 1980s video from Dunkin Donuts as an example of effective storytelling. Well -- it is definitely not storytelling but instead an add that is all features and benefits.

 

The other two advertising videos however, are great examples from the past of really good stories.

 

I don't know if our biz storytelling is not as good these days as in previous decades. But I do like the questions Drew poses at the end of the post to help us decide.

 

What do you think? Is our biz storytelling better or worse than before?

Empathy vs Religion

Empathy vs Religion | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it

"You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong, then you lack empathy, not religion."

 

If you are still reading, I want to offer my perspective on what this quote implies. I feel suited for this infamous task because, while I consider myself spiritual in a broad sense, I am agnostic when it comes to religion and its associated dogma.  First, let’s define the key terms: religion, morals, and empathy. ”

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute

Content Curation Could Be Your Most Powerful Community-Building Tool | Content Marketing Institute | Building Authentic Business Relationships | Scoop.it

Susan McKittrick, an analyst with Patricia Seybold Group, wrote in this her article:

 

"We hear a lot about content curation these days. Some call it a top trend for 2012 and a must-see new technology for marketers.

 

A content curator assembles a quality collection of third-party and original content that is of keen interest to a particular audience, selects the best content for presentation, adds commentary valuable to the audience and publishes to the audience’s preferred channels. Content curation tools use technology to facilitate these steps.

 

Marketers use content curation to establish a reputation as a trusted resource in a particular area, to build an audience (that eventually buys) above the funnel, and to foster interaction with a community of people who share specific interests.

 

You will find a good example of content curation in action at www.cmo.com. Curators of this website draw on top quality content created by others combined with their own original content to present.

 

An enterprise content curation tool will:

- Help you find the best content;
- Make it fast and easy to select items and add commentary;
- Provide flexibility in presentation and distribution of curated content;
- Support the information consumer’s experience, through personalization and navigation;
- Report data marketers need to improve execution, demonstrate value and gain customer insight.


Some of the enterprise content curation tools you’ll want to consider are:

- Eqentia - http://www.eqentia.com
- HiveFire - http://www.getcurata.com
- Loud3r - http://www.loud3r.com
