How the brain controls our habits

How the brain controls our habits | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

 

Habits are behaviors wired so deeply in our brains that we perform them automatically. This allows you to follow the same route to work every day without thinking about it, liberating your brain to ponder other things, such as what to make for dinner.

 

However, the brain's executive command center does not completely relinquish control of habitual behavior.

Did you know libraries can facilitate learning for most, if not all, of these skills? Ask your librarian how he or she can help you instill these skills and values in your students.

Russell Taylor's curator insight, January 23, 5:40 AM

Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 10:04 PM

I came across an article in THE Journal called 6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL. This sent me to the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation where I found a range of excellent materials on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The link provided here will take you to a page where they have three toolkits:

* Action and Expression Digital Resources

* Engagement Digital Resources

* Representation Digital Resources

Each toolkit is 6 - 7 pages long and shares digital tools that will help you each of the three areas.
For example, when you open up the Action and Expression Digital resources you will find the following categories:

  - Options in the mode of physical action

  - Options in the means of navigation

  - Options for accessing tools and assistive technologies

  - Options in the media for communication

  - Options in the tools for composition and problem solving

  - Options in the scaffolds for practice and performance

  - Options that provide effective goal-setting

  - Options that support planning and strategy development

  - Options that facilitate managing information and resources

  - Options that enhance capacity for monitoring progress

You can download each file as a pdf and there is a hot link to each suggested tool.

The site also provides additional information on UDL, including links to a number of other resources that provide an excellent overview and includes videos as well as text based materials.

You may also find the original article (linked to above) of interest. Here is one quote:

"Just like a worksheet can be a barrier and a print text can be a barrier, technology can be a barrier for some students as well. UDL is not about technology but it is about using technology in an intentional way.”

Facial emotion workout video helps patients and physicians alike

Facial emotion workout video helps patients and physicians alike | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

The ability to read and reflect back facial emotion is the most basic skill of communicating empathy. This crucial skill allows health professionals to let patients know that we truly understand and care, and allows patients to let their caretakers know they are appreciated.

As a practicing physician for many decades and as a teacher of psychiatric interviewing for my entire professional life, I have found that physicians sometimes need to work to develop this skill. I have tested many groups of students and found that reading and reflecting facial emotion is more difficult for medical students than, for example, acting students....

 

 This is a major conceptual contribution we can offer from psychoanalysis, and no medical school curriculum can afford to ignore this teaching of empathy and identification with the patient.

 

In time, I hope to use the videos to teach residents and nurses as well.  I recently learned that the “Making Faces” video will soon be required viewing in a Narrative Medicine course for Medical, Dental, Nursing and Public Health students taught by Rita Charon. I am deeply gratified that our effort will find all these audiences and become an essential ingredient in their development of clinical empathy.

Doctor, Shut Up and Listen: Doctors are evaluated for technical skills, but not for having empathy.

Doctor, Shut Up and Listen: Doctors are evaluated for technical skills, but not for having empathy. | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

A doctor’s ability to explain, listen and empathize has a profound impact on a patient’s care.


Yet, as one survey found, two out of every three patients are discharged from the hospital without even knowing their diagnosis. Another study discovered that in over 60 percent of cases, patients misunderstood directions after a visit to their doctor’s office. And on average, physicians wait just 18 seconds before interrupting patients’ narratives of their symptoms. Evidently, we have a long way to go.


Three years ago, my colleagues and I started a program in Harrisburg designed to improve doctors’ communication with their patients. This large urban hospital system serves a city with a population of about 50,000, together with the surrounding metropolitan area of more than 550,000 people.

Pål Dobrin's curator insight, January 9, 5:36 AM

Läkare utvärderas efter deras tekniska färdigheter, men inte efter deras empatiska förmågor. Det kanske är otillräckligt med tanke på den tydliga kopplingen mellan läkarens empatiska förmåga och patienters tillfrisknande?  Läkare som förklarar diagnoser, lyssnar uppmärksamt och känner in är värda att uppskattas lite extra!
