Ben Smith: 'I felt like I had no feelings, so with self-harm I felt pain'

Ben Smith: 'I felt like I had no feelings, so with self-harm I felt pain' | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Ben Smith started cutting himself when he felt that nobody cared about him.

 

He was 14 and in Year 10 at a West Auckland high school. When he was about 8, he had found out that the man he thought was his dad was not his real father. Suddenly he understood why he was always treated differently from his two younger brothers, who were his father's children.

Being empathetic to bullies

Being empathetic to bullies | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

by Kyle Dyer, 

9NEWS Psychologist Dr. Max Wachtel recommends having empathy for the bully to combat their behavior.


Having empathy for a bully actually helps the child affected in many ways. Dr. Wachtel offered these examples:


  • They have more (and better quality) friends
  • They do better in school
  • They feel more in control and are more assertive
  • They are more likely to confront inequality when they see it without resorting to violence
  • Others see them as leaders



... In October, Dr. Wachtel has a book coming out that deals with this topic of empathy titled "The One Rule for Boys." Find out more about it here:http://www.oneruleforboys.com/.

Terrific insights!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 19, 8:24 PM

Several months ago I scooped an article by George Couros who used the word myth in this title as well. Myths always have kernels of truth. Joseph Campbell and James Hillman wrote about myths and their role in our lives. There are parts of them that are pure fiction. For example, and the two articles contrast each other, this one suggests that digital technologies will not replace teachers. This is true in some settings, perhaps the independent school movement, but in public schools with neo-liberal agendas driving the supposed reform that is just not the case. Digital technologies are being trumpeted as making learning more efficient displacing the role of the teacher in many respects.

Even in Education Everything Old is New Again

Even in Education Everything Old is New Again | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

It’s been over fifty years since the article “Teaching Machines” appeared in the Science Journal from which the opening quote was excerpted. Author B.F. Skinner would be pleased to read some of the headlines in the education sector this week, one in particular “College in a Box” (Kahn, 2014) which describes how textbook publishers such as Pearson have developed enhanced textbooks and put them on their online platforms such as MyMathLab. These enhanced ‘books’ feature interactive quizzes, tutorials, immediate feedback, and tutorial videos based upon students’ responses. Pearson’s new spin on the old textbook would likely meet Skinner’s definition of efficiency. Coincidently, the instructional method used for Pearson’s textbook programs is programmed instruction; a method Skinner developed and applied with his teaching machine. Skinner’s machine consisted of a program, developed to deliver a self-learning experience for the student that included presenting of content, related questions for students to answers, immediate  and corrective feedback.

Making Friends With Failure

Making Friends With Failure | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
There is a major disconnect between schools and the real world on the notion of failure. School teaches us there is only one answer for every problem. And if we don't get it, we are a failure. This dissuades students from trying -- they fear failure. We need to teach students how to make friends with failure.

It used to be that neuroscientists thought smart people were all alike. But now they think that some very smart people retain the ability to learn rapidly, like a child, well into adolescence. That means they have a longer period of time to learn from their environment — and maybe learn Chinese.

Effects of the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign on youths

Could the US government's biggest ever attempt to use the media to turn US youth away from cannabis actually have done the reverse? At best it was a disappointment; at worst, it counterproductively fostered the impression that 'Everyone's doing it'.
