Early Childhood Brain Insights: NOT SURPRISING, IS IT?

Early Childhood Brain Insights: NOT SURPRISING, IS IT? | Therapy | Scoop.it

“This study validates something that seems to be intuitive, which is just how important nurturing parents are to creating adaptive human beings,” says lead author Joan L. Luby, MD, professor of child psychiatry. “I think the public health implications suggest that we should pay more attention to parents’ nurturing, and we should do what we can as a society to foster these skills because clearly nurturing has a very, very big impact on later development.”

This can be so reassuring for caring parents! These findings can also be inspiring to those wanting additional evidence that there is a critical need to place greater emphasis on this area and time of development.

By Hattie x. "Being diagnosed with Manic Depression felt like being given a death sentence at the time (though it wasn't I would duly discover), whilst realizing I was highly sensitive was like coming home, finally discovering who I was and having answers to many many questions as to how I was in the world and who I fundamentally was as a person."

Kasia Hein-Peters's curator insight, March 23, 2013 4:48 PM

Positive psychology is used by many coaches. It makes sense, as it is always more motivating to focus on strength areas rather than on weaknesses. The flip side might be, however, that there is not enough focus on areas for improvement. I suggest to take a balanced approach and adjust the coaching techniques to the client's needs.

It is so simple yet so powerful and so under used. Nothing like receiving and giving an authentic expression of gratitide to make someone's day. And if we committed to giving just one sincere thank you eac day for 365 days the difference we could make in the world.

The BioSync Team's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:01 PM

Gratitude, appreciation, encouragement, love, etc...these qualities bring authentic engagement to our lives.

"Do not miss a single chance - not one single opportunity - to tell someone how wonderful they are, how special they are, how important to you they are, how incredible as a person they are, how beautiful they are inside and out. Do not miss a single opening in which to insert such a comment, genuinely felt and genuinely meant."
- Neale Donald Walsch

"The mental suffering of sensitive, creative and divergent children and adults is real. Existential depression, loneliness, and emotional overwhelm are very real, as are the complications arising from our use of behaviors and substances to alleviate our suffering. These experiences don’t require a diagnosis of mental illness in order to be taken seriously. And treating our suffering doesn’t need to include tampering with our highly sensitive brains."
