Your meditator friends either look like they could smile through a sandstorm or are so neurotically self-aware that they drive you nuts with their “mindful” attitudes and “conscious” relating. Meanwhile, you’re so stressed you can’t sit and watch your thoughts. Or label them. Or “hold them with nonjudgmental awareness.” If mindfulness meditation hasn’t worked for you, don’t beat yourself up. There is no end of effective meditation strategies to calm the mind.

Using Poetry to Introduce Empathy into Your Child's Life

Using Poetry to Introduce Empathy into Your Child's Life | Love Reigns Supreme | Scoop.it

Poetry, like empathy, can be undervalued in today’s modern world. Poetry has the capacity to make the audience feel and not just think. Poetry takes the readers on a journey through their own emotional spectrum and that is why it is an art form that parents can find very valuable for their children. In order to appreciate poetry, one has to be open to one’s own empathetic nature, and that in and of itself is an act of social justice--the true power of art. Parents can read poetry with their children to interpret and analyze more complex issues together. Connecting to that part of us that innately understands and appreciates the empathetic state of mind in a wondrously meaningful practice that poetry instills in its readers.

MikeBreault's comment, May 7, 2013 10:16 AM
With the increase of patients diagnosed with ADHD comes in an increase in medical treatment for ADHD. DSM V is set to release next week. Many European countries have already agreed to not use the manual, as experts agree that the manual will prove for broader interpretations of diagnosis under a broader range of conditions and symptoms associated with ADHD. DSM V is set to lead into poor methodology. “Also there is an increased chance for over diagnosis and misdiagnosis that could lead to epidemics in mental health.” (Sharma, Rahul) DSM V alongside the most recent DSM IV-TR has the capability to allow for more medical diagnosis, which will lead to medical treatment, which ultimately helps flood money into large pharmaceutical companies.
