Self-Compassion, Growth Mindset, and the Benefits of Failure

Self-Compassion, Growth Mindset, and the Benefits of Failure | School Counseling | Scoop.it
Two different psychological studies were published today that illuminate the importance of various age students practicing self-compassion and adopting a "growth mindset" (a term coined by Carol Dweck of Stanford University) marked by a self-belief that your intelligence is malleable and never set in stone. 

The first study, from the University of British Columbia, "Don't be so hard on yourself! Changes in self-compassion during the first year of university are associated with changes in well-being," was published today in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

The second study, from Michigan State University, "Neural evidence for enhanced attention to mistakes among school-aged children with a growth mindset," was published online today in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience.

Classes help define bullying
Republican Eagle
Burnside Elementary School students in Rachel Glover's third-grade class conduct their morning meeting in front of posters explaining what bullying is.
Nicole Canfield's insight:

I love how each classroom at this school discusses bullying topics during their morning meetings.  There is a need for children to be taught how to Recognize, Refuse and Report bullying incidents--a curriculum by Committee for Children entitled "Steps to Respect" does just that.  It is what we use at our school.

 Make the world better – teach kids empathy

 Make the world better – teach kids empathy | School Counseling | Scoop.it

So how do we parents teach our kids to have empathy? It seems to us that we must challenge our sons and daughters to be aware in the moment — to be ready to shift their attitude when they see bad behavior. If you witness someone being bullied, either in person or through cyberspace, imagine that you’re the victim of the bullying.

 

 

How would you feel? And what should you do about it? If you heard someone shout a racial epithet or another derogatory label, how would you feel if you were the object of such a slur? And what should you do about it?

How to Listen with Compassion in the Classroom

How to Listen with Compassion in the Classroom | School Counseling | Scoop.it

 Martha Caldwell 

When we teach compassionate listening to students, we foster belonging, inclusion, and learning in the classroom. 


 

Our students are driven by a need to belong.
In classroom environments where the need to belong is thwarted, however, young people may grasp for power and prestige rather than learn how to form authentic connections. We all know students who try to fit in in negative ways: bullying, striving to be “cool,” buying in to peer pressure, or conforming to negative stereotypes.

 

They typically lack the necessary social-emotional skills to form healthy, supportive relationships and do not understand that these behaviors obstruct rather than satisfy the need to belong. This can produce a fear-based classroom atmosphere that impedes learning.

How to Fight Stress with Empathy 

How to Fight Stress with Empathy  | School Counseling | Scoop.it
Psychologist Arthur Ciaramicoli argues that empathic listening may be the key to reducing stress in our lives.

 

Why use empathy? Because when we give and receive empathy we produce the near magical neurotransmitter oxytocin, which creates a sense of trust and cooperation—keys to negotiating and resolving conflict, whether between couples, communities, states, or countries. Leading with empathy can help those around us to be sources of support in our lives and reduce the likelihood of interpersonal conflicts.

 

Of course, it may be difficult to imagine feeling empathic when we are angry or tired. Think of a couple reuniting after a long day of work. Without first connecting through empathy and love, they may end up fighting over whose turn it is to do the dishes or simply withdrawing from each other, depriving themselves of the comfort that closeness brings.

Grief and Low Self-Esteem: Do you feel like you are dealing with more than one mental illness at one time when it comes to your family and divorce?

Grief and Low Self-Esteem: Do you feel like you are dealing with more than one mental illness at one time when it comes to your family and divorce? | School Counseling | Scoop.it

When a doctor or counselor uses the term co-morbidity, it literally means that there are two or more occurring issues at one time or a dual diagnosis. What this means is that there is not one problem going on that needs to be addressed but more than one and they often interplay on each other.
