“ TEACHING character skills like determination and optimism is more important than raising test scores, argues Paul Tough in his new book”
Via Shary Lyssy Marshall
jenscomar's insight:
Set high expectations and high standards. Perhaps a system that disallows strict due dates and thus allows students to rush through everything they haven't done all semester in the last few weeks does the opposite of encouraging grit. Perhaps a system that doesn't allow failure also discourages grit. Need to give this a more thorough listen to consolidate my thoughts.

World Mental Health Day 2012: Got Resilience?

World Mental Health Day 2012: Got Resilience? | Resilience | Scoop.it
Why do some people seem to bounce back from stress while ohers succumb to depression, anxiety or even Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? Are some people just better at pulling themselves up by their bootstraps?

Via Gina Stepp
jenscomar's insight:

It's all summed up in the final paragraph:

"Resilience isn’t something we just “work up” on our own. It is rooted deeply in our first interactions with other human beings—and is watered and fed by the social connections we continue to make throughout our lifespan. Perhaps it’s no accident that we talk about “the milk of human kindness.” After all, just as milk forms the foundation of a baby’s physical health, a parent’s kind and responsive attention forms the foundation of the child’s mental health."

1. Fill Knowledge Gaps

My friend gathered information that was meaningful to him in his particular situation. Once he assessed this information, he could move forward because he knew his heart was getting the blood it needed to eventually heal.

Similarly, as an FBI agent it was important to continue to collect evidence when faced with an obstacle.

Filling knowledge gaps by sorting facts from speculation was an important strategy so the next steps could be intentional, specific, and measurable.

Many wish to remove adversity from children's lives. Knowing this is impossible, preparing students with a positive and resourceful internal dialogue is so important to their resilience. I like your imagery of walking between the raindrops. it captures the essence of the parent scramble to protect their children from adversity. I have certainly shuffled my way with my children through some rainy days, ended up soaked, and with a good laugh and some quality down time, they grew from the experiences.

It's a good thing resilience is both innate... and can be cultivated!

The Neuroscience of Resilience: Empathy | The Toolbox

The Neuroscience of Resilience: Empathy | The Toolbox | Resilience | Scoop.it

Neuropsychologists see empathy as the integration of body-based information and emotional signals and cognitive thought and beliefs about another’s experience, making sense, making meaning, creating understanding, and then checking out the accuracy of that understanding through a verbal feedback loop. I experienced the difference between attunement and empathy when my mother died. Many, many good people could attune to the grief and disorientation I was feeling.

Lessons From The Long-Lived - Researcher says the elderly are pragmatic ‘masters and mistresses of resilience’

Lessons From The Long-Lived - Researcher says the elderly are pragmatic ‘masters and mistresses of resilience’ | Resilience | Scoop.it

Not long ago, Karl Pillemer had a revelation.

A gerontologist with close to 30 years of experience, Pillemer, who is director of the Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging, realized that his research was “entirely focused on older people as problems.”

“It’s something a little bit embarrassing for me,” Pillemer told a crowd at the Harvard Graduate School of Education on Wednesday, as he described his work in areas involving chronic pain, elder abuse, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and problems of family care giving. “I got to a point in this revelation that it seemed like I was writing the ‘Book of Job’ for old people.”

But Pillemer, who is also a professor of human development at Cornell University, remembered that his job also engages him with “vibrant, engaged, healthy, exciting, and active older people.”
