When Someone Really Listens, We Heal

When Someone Really Listens, We Heal | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Sharing our deepest feelings with a trusted individual can be a healing experience, especially for those experiencing depression. Never underestimate the power of talking with someone who really listens.


Our culture doesn’t encourage people to

talk about their emotional pain.


Our culture teaches people to suppress their feelings. People tell each other not to “whine” about problems or not to “dwell” on them. People are told to “get over it” and to “be strong,” meaning “don’t feel anything—and if you do, don’t talk about it or show it.”

The Key to School Change: Getting Comfortable With Discomfort

The Key to School Change: Getting Comfortable With Discomfort | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Improvement requires change, which often means discomfort. Your school can edge out of its comfort zone by breaking down silos, taking risks, and shifting resources.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

The basic idea here is that when someone tries to improve a school in any significant way, many people are going to be uncomfortable and push back.  It is the push back that makes change hard.  Therapeutic Boarding Schools have long since gone through that transition and using a whole child perspective, have incorporated that discomfort into the routine curriculum. -Lon

The industrial-era school day and the agricultural school year need to be repealed and replaced! Where have I heard this phrase? Perhaps if we re-thought, re-organized, and re-ordered our priorities we could better focus students' activities to promote collaborative learning, communication, literacy, numeracy, problem solving,&  team work skills. This would foster leadership, citizenship, character and maybe even the courage to change on the part of teachers and admins. First resist memorization, timed, high stakes testing, excessive homework and grading! The future of our society, economy and democracy are in play. --Lou

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

“[Adolescence is] a stage of life when we can really thrive, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Temple University neuroscientist Laurence Steinberg at a Learning and the Brain conference in Boston.

[Adolescence is] a stage of life when we can really thrive, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Temple University neuroscientist Laurence Steinberg at a Learning and the Brain conference in Boston. Steinberg has spent his career studying how the adolescent brain develops and believes there is a fundamental disconnect between the popular characterizations of adolescents and what’s really going on in their brains.

Because the brain is still developing during adolescence, it has incredible plasticity. It’s akin to the first five years of life, when a child’s brain is growing and developing new pathways all the time in response to experiences. Adult brains are somewhat plastic as well — otherwise they wouldn’t be able to learn new things — but “brain plasticity in adulthood involves minor changes to existing circuits, not the wholesale development of new ones or elimination of others,” Steinberg said.

 

The adolescent brain is exquisitely sensitive to experience,” Steinberg said. “It is like the recording device is turned up to a different level of sensitivity.” That’s why humans tend to remember even the most mundane events from adolescence much better than even important events that took place later in life. It also means adolescence could be an extremely important window for learning that sticks. Steinberg notes this window is also lengthening as scientists observe the onset of puberty happening earlier and young people taking on adult roles later in life. Between these two factors, one biological and one social, adolescence researchers now generally say the period lasts 15 years between the ages of 10 and 25.

The Downsides of Being Very Emotionally Intelligent #EQ 

The Downsides of Being Very Emotionally Intelligent #EQ  | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Even EQ is better in moderation.

But is higher EQ always beneficial? Although the downside of higher EQ remains largely unexplored, there are many reasons for being cautious about a one-size-fits-all or higher-is-always-better take on EQ. Most things are better in moderation, and there is a downside to every human trait. Let’s focus again on Gemma and explore some of the less favorable implications of her high EQ.
