A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children

A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

"Do you foster an anxious mindset or a resilient mindset in your children or students? The USA is currently the number 1 most anxious country in the world with 27% of the population living with anxiety and depression. In Australia 20% of the population experience a mental illness in any year. In the UK 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year and about 10% of children have a mental health problem at any one time."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 10, 2013 1:16 PM

This post discusses an app for the iPad or iPhone that helps students understand their feelings and how their mind works. There are three parts to this strategy.

* Catch - Students learn to identify thoughts that impact how they feel

* Challenge - Students learn to challenge their thoughts, asking if they are based on assumptions, facts, perhaps overly negative

* Change - Students choose to change the way they think

There is a table within the post that provides Do's and Don'ts for each of the three C's listed above.

Consider posting the image as well as the table within the post "to help teach children to identify the exact nature of their thoughts, unpack and challenge those thoughts and stories and change how they feel."

Chloe Parsons's curator insight, November 3, 2013 12:37 AM

This is a really interesting post, in the way that it not only informs you about anxiety, but also shows ways to cope.

The 'Catch, challenge, change' stratergy has been created to help children and young adults relistically-

 think about their thoughts-

"What am I worrying about?"

Challenge your thoughts-

"Is this definately going to happen?"

"What will happen if I do do it?"

And change thoughts-

"What can I do to make myself feel less anxoius? Talk to someone?"

I believe that once you know about certain disorders, they become less scary. Helping children and young adults learn and understand anxiety, even if they dont experience anxiety themselves, is an important step to teaching kids to understand themselves and people around them.
