Secret teacher: stress is reaching a crisis point in schools ~ The Guardian

Secret teacher: stress is reaching a crisis point in schools ~ The Guardian | Childhood resilience | Scoop.it

by Jerry Lampen

 

"Something needs to be done urgently because teachers are dropping like flies. I am noticing more and more colleagues are off with stress and depression or related conditions. My own partner has been pushed so far he is now controlling depression with medication. You can ask anyone he works with or who knows him what sort of teacher and person he is – strong, kind, caring and supportive. Ask him the same question, and you'll get completely different answers. He firmly believes he is a bad teacher, cannot control the students and his results aren't good enough."

Are Humans Instinctively Compassionate?

Are Humans Instinctively Compassionate? | Childhood resilience | Scoop.it
Humans are instinctively compassionate is a viewpoint that has been expressed, hypothesized and tested in multiple studies over the last two decades. This article explores this viewpoint and provides insight into the subject.

 

That humans are instinctively compassionate is a viewpoint that has been expressed, hypothesized and tested in multiple studies over the last two decades. 

 

Some of this research is referenced in the widely circulated article, The Compassionate Instinct, by UC Berkeley Psychology Professor Dacher Keltner. He cited different studies that showed similar neurological reactions in mothers seeing pictures of their own or others’ babies and subjects asked to think about people being harmed.

The neurological reactions occurred in areas of the brain associated with positive emotions, said Keltner, founding faculty director of the school’s Greater Good Science Center.

Empathy

Empathy | Childhood resilience | Scoop.it
In ancient China a person without feeling was considered as no person at all

 

Mencius summarizes empathy: “When I say that all men have the mind which cannot bear to see the suffering of others, my meaning is illustrated this way: when two men suddenly see a child about to fall into a well, they all have a feeling of alarm and distress, not to gain friendshipwith the child’s parents, nor to seek the praise of their neighbors and friends . . . From such a case, we see that a man without the feeling of commiseration is not a man . . . The feeling of commiseration is the beginning of humanity.”

 

The basis of ethics is empathy, and from that it is possible to develop the human heart more fully. It is what might be thought of as sympathy put into action.

Increasing Stress, Decreasing Empathy: Need Emotional Intelligence

Increasing Stress, Decreasing Empathy: Need Emotional Intelligence | Childhood resilience | Scoop.it

We’re facing a growing demand for collaboration at work, in life — but we’re creating conditions for the opposite.  We’re at war with ourselves, at a cellular level, as our brains struggle to cope with requirements that are beyond the design scope.  While current neuroscience makes this descending spiral brutally clear – it also offers solutions.

 

“Stress” is a generalization.  It’s shorthand for a sense of imbalance and impending chaos.  Cycle times are accelerating.  Financial systems are melting.  Waters are rising.  So we feel stress.  It’s an emotional signal of danger, and it’s one reason emotional intelligence is more important than ever.  Unfortunately, stress is increasing.

Emotional Intelligence is a fairly new term, but relevant.  Look for ways to decrease your stress levels and improve your emotional intelligence.
