Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience: Theories and Practices that Work!
The University of Louisville, Center for Family and Community Wellbeing study found that Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Increasing Resilience significantly reduced Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms and increased trauma coping skills. What makes Mind Matters so effective?
In this webinar author Carolyn Curtis reviews the research behind Mind Matters’ effectiveness. She discusses the program’s theory of change as well as the individual lessons that bring results.
Relationship Education for Youth Who Have Faced Adversity
Offering extra support on developing healthy relationships is particularly important for youth who have faced interpersonal trauma and adversity; these experiences may place young people at increased risk for poor relational and other outcomes. This annotated bibliography is intended to provide practitioners and researchers within the HMRE field with useful information that may help them adapt, develop, and test new or refined strategies for working with diverse groups of youth, including those who have faced adversity.
Importance of Perspective Taking In Healthy Romantic Relationships
Perspective-taking appears to act as a buffer against psychological relationship aggression during emerging adulthood, according to new research published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships. Forming and maintaining romantic relationships is an important part of emerging adulthood, and psychological aggression can play an pivotal role in this process. However, the authors of the current research said that few previous studies had considered the relationship experiences of both partners when investigating this topic.
Interconnecting Mental Health and Behavioral Support Improves School Safety
When children experience violence at school, be it bullying or gun violence, the negative consequences of those interactions can follow them for years, often manifesting later as higher rates of absenteeism, lower high school graduation rates, and lower college graduation rates. Early intervention is a key resource in preventing aggressive behaviors from occurring in the first place, and effective early intervention serves to build a positive school climate for all students.
