Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Veterans Issues and Resources | Scoop.it

You may think that there are a thousand ways in which feedback can push your buttons, but in fact there are only three, say these two negotiation teachers from Harvard Law School. Feedback -- whether justified or not -- is hard to judge impartially when it doesn’t square with what you think is true, when you don’t trust the person providing it, or when it threatens your basic sense of yourself. ....

Patricia Clason's insight:

These tips for receiving feedback can be so valuable for anyone who is sensitive to criticism - and those who are carrying emotional wounds, like PTSD, can be hyper-sensitive.

Targeted toward how to receive feedback as valuable coaching, this is a VERY GOOD article for both giver and receiver. Take the time to read it!

Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 11, 2014 4:04 PM

From the article: "Your growth depends on your ability to pull value from criticism in spite of your natural responses and on your willingness to seek out even more advice and coaching from bosses, peers, and subordinates. They may be good or bad at providing it, or they may have little time for it—but you are the most important factor in your own development. If you’re determined to learn from whatever feedback you get, no one can stop you."

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 18, 2014 7:01 PM

Receiving feedback is never easy, but here are some tips to handle it more constructively.

Returning vets face 'warring identities' distress

Returning vets face 'warring identities' distress | Veterans Issues and Resources | Scoop.it
Soldiers returning home from war may find themselves engaged in an even tougher conflict. A new paper examines the 'warring identities' many veterans confront when transitioning from soldier to civilian life. "You can't really do research on veterans mental health without some kind of dialogue on PTSD, but we're trying to move away from the standard PTSD framework to contextualize the veteran experience and get a more accurate picture of what vets returning from war look like as opposed to just looking at the medical side of things," the author said.
Patricia Clason's insight:

This speaks to the conflict of military v civilian identity when veterans return. Valuable read.

Blasts may cause brain injury even without symptoms: Veteran study

Blasts may cause brain injury even without symptoms: Veteran study | Veterans Issues and Resources | Scoop.it
Veterans exposed to explosions who do not report symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) may still have damage to the brain's white matter comparable to veterans with TBI, according to researchers. Veterans of recent military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan often have a history of exposure to explosive forces from bombs, grenades and other devices, although relatively little is known about whether this injures the brain. However, evidence is building – particularly among professional athletes – that subconcussive events have an effect on the brain.
Patricia Clason's insight:

The invisible wounds of war. Brain injury so is complex, we are in the infant stages of learning about it. Patience with those who return with challenging symptoms is important as we can't always see the damage that has been done.
