The Divide Between Bullying and Conflict

posted by monicajenner66 3 months ago
tags: education self directed learning

Conflict can include being rude or mean.

Being rude is when someone is not trying to intentionally hurt the other person. It isn’t a repetitive behavior, and there is not an imbalance of power. For example, Judy asked Martha if she could borrow a pencil. But Martha explained that it wasn’t her pencil, she borrowed it from another friend, so she didn’t want to let Judy use it.

Being mean is when someone is trying to intentionally hurt the other person but they are usually nice, and there is no imbalance of power. For example, if Kyle told Mark that he was a terrible baseball player who should never try out for the baseball team, then Kyle is being mean to Mark.

Wilderness Therapy Progtams at Georgia

18556223_1986316874930712_1491871558449647916_n Adolescents at Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness experience an adventure that takes them beyond shifts in behavior to true second order change. We believe it is the depth of work and individualization that matter most, which is why we maintain a simple nomadic model. This allows for the greatest amount of flexibility to meet the needs of each unique teen we work with, as well as the peer group they are integrated within. The constant, gentle pressure of this model speaks volumes to our students. It reminds them of their own self-agency, power, compassion, responsibility, depth, and resilience. At Blue Ridge, we employ a nomadic model ofwilderness therapy. Our students do not come in to a base camp, transition from point to point in vehicles, participate in adventure sports, or engage in other breaks in the experience. The result is a fine-tuned group experience in which students and staff learn to settle into the quiet nurturing of the wilderness.

Teens with Substance Abuse Develop Self Efficacy in Wilderness Therapy

posted by monicajenner66 3 months ago
tags: georgia health mental health

As my training in EMDR was coming to a close, I had an interesting conversation with one of the primary facilitators, Frank. He described his efforts to bring EMDR treatment into public schools. He spoke with conviction about the need for and potential benefits of this treatment for children, and he lamented the opposition he’d encountered. Some of the students were very resistant, and this paled in comparison to parents who thought the protocol looked a lot like hypnosis. Though frustrated by this, Frank smiled as he described the solution he’d devised. Proudly, Frank displayed a toy ball that flashed when he slammed it against the table.

A Balancing Act with Referrals = Continuing To Grow

posted by monicajenner66 4 months ago
tags: seo mindshift

It typically starts with an email or a tweet or a FB message and goes something like - "Hi, I am John Doe and my business does XYZ. Our website is outdated and Mr. Smith referred you to me. We need help, what are your rates?"

We are excited because we have a lead and even better it is a referral from an evangelist aka a happy client. Great, right? For sure! Well, ok, most of the time it is, but sometimes it turns into us walking a tight rope balancing our reputation and referral with the demands and issues of the new client.

Defining the University Model &Why it Works-2

Makarios is a progressive private school in Grapevine, TX. We serve families with children ages 5-18 by supporting self-directed learning in an environment that balances freedom and responsibility and prepares young people to thrive in today’s complex world.

You Deserve More Choices in Education

We recognize that many families are deeply dissatisfied with the experience children are having in traditional public and private schools. Often, kids are bright—but bored and not challenged to reach their full potential. They may feel bullied and isolated. Or, they may have been “labeled” with a learning disability or behavior problems.

At Makarios, we see kids as you see them—the way they really are. Naturally talented, accelerated learners, rambunctious and energetic, curious and thoughtful. Above all, diverse and unique. We invite you to visit a community where children can experience education differently.

Treating Trauma, Grief, and Shame in Adolescent Boys

As stated by EMDR Institute, Inc., “EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.”  In sessions, clients shift patterns of avoidance and explore their memories and interpretations of past events. In between sets of eye movements, the therapist checks in with the client to follow how they are reprocessing the events and guide the client further. Typically, through EMDR, negative beliefs about self decrease and, following this, positive thoughts and perspectives are strengthened.
