ADOLESCENT SLEEP

Rika 's insight:

My thoughts:

                I found like article extremely interesting knowing that early school times really do affect us in a negative way. Adolescents (teenagers) need about 9 hours and 15 minutes a night in order to feel well rested, also due to our biological clocks we should be going to bed around 11:30 PM not 10 PM. Studies have shown that due to early school schedules and cause sleep deprivation teens are starting to become lazy sleepy young adults. Right now the average hours of sleep a teenager is receiving is approximately 6.5 hours of sleep. That is a lot less then what we should be getting. Many Minnesota schools have pushed back their bell schedules to 8:30 instead of 7:30 and they are seeing a tremendous increase in grades, less sleeping in class, and a lot less disciplinary actions.

My thoughts:

 

I have felt lately I haven’t been retaining information when I am studying and in my psychology class we are getting into the learning unit. So this article has shown me some tips I can really use to my advantage while studying. Knowing that I don’t retain information as well the day after studying shows me that I really do need to change my study habits. I have learned that I should start studying in little chunks 2 weeks before instead of cramming 2-3 days before the test; it won’t help me at all. Also since this is linked with psychology is was really good information for me to learn !

A Moment in the Life of a Dance Psychologist

A Moment in the Life of a Dance Psychologist | senior-seminar1 | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

Knowing that I want to go into the field of psychology and incorporate dance into my therapy, this was a wonderful article to read. It showed me that there are many links between movement and thinking. They have already discovered that there is a link between Parkinson’s disease and Dancing. Dancing can improve their balance and walking. Also, dance is a great way to see what is in the unconscious mind by the way they dance and react to the different types of music that is played. I really hope when I get into this field to find more links between the mind and the movement of dance.

My Thoughts:

 

Since I am still trying to find the right match for me for an internship, this really helped me to narrow down what I should be looking for, and how to best apporach it.

Bullying Can Lead to PTSD Symptoms

Bullying Can Lead to PTSD Symptoms | senior-seminar1 | Scoop.it

A new study has found a high incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms among teenagers who have been bullied.

The study of 963 teens aged 14 and 15 in Norwegian schools found symptoms of the disorder in about 33 percent of the students who said they were victims of bullying — though it did not determine that these students were diagnosed with full-blown PTSD.

Rika 's insight:

My thoughts:

 

    Recently, bullying has become a major issue in schools and in kids. Sadly but not surprising, this can have a major effect on children and they may develop PTSD which is post-traumatic stress disorder.  This disorder has shown up in many soldiers who have come back from the war. Sometimes this has can be cured with heavy therapy but other times it can’t be cured at all. From this article, I have learned that females are more likely to develop this disorder but are unsure as to why.

My thoughts: Studies have shown that having a negative parenting styles on students will affect your well-being in a negative way. Kids are more likely to go have a negative trend in school and end up feeling depressed. But having a positive parenting style will for sure boost their self esteem and well-being as a child, they will feel like they are loved and will want to be more involved with school and enjoy outside activities more as they know that their parents are supporting them.

PhD in Counseling Psychology | Online and Distance Learning | senior-seminar1 | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

Knowing that I would like to go into the field of psychology, this was good to see what different schools allows me to get my PhD either online or in a class on campus. Also, the demand for psychologists is increasing. So once I have gotten my degree I should be able to find a job working at a clinic or possibly a school. I have learned that getting your license to be a psychologist is a lot of hard working you must complete the following to receive your license: you need to have a master's degree or PhD in counseling and up to 2,000 hours of supervised clinical internship, in addition to taking a state-administered exam.

Virtual internships grow in popularity on campuses

Virtual internships grow in popularity on campuses | senior-seminar1 | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

 

Having virtual internships is a wonderful thing for students to have access to. This can be of real help to students who really need to get experience in a job, but have no way to go anywhere due to lack of transportation. This way they can still do the job without leaving there own home and if they are a college student they can still attend all of their classes not have to worry about skipping one or being late if they have to leave campus for an internship. Also, since this world is so electronically dependent, this will give students the opportunity to learn more about the computer and the internet, which will hopefully open more jobs up for them in the future.
