FEATURES OF THE MODEL –
THE FORMULA :
So, a human being's Optimal performance is about maximising the positive interaction of their inner potentials and their unique personality taking away the interference from many listed factors then adding the ‘magic element’ which is the support that we can creatively offer as professionals and a society.
Performance is the total response of a human being both mentally and physically to the demands placed on them and to the positive and negative factors of the world around them.
Mental health teams should be working towards achieving and maximising these shared outcomes with individualised approaches that suit a person’s current wants, their mutually determined needs and their situation, starting with where they are at and not where society or professionals think they are or 'should' be.
We need to reduce the stress in their internal ‘stress bucket.’ (Traxson 1993)
Basically if we reduce the 'teaspoons', 'cupfuls' and 'kettlefuls' that helps people develop more self-control, enhancing their personal self-efficacy and their feelings of self-worth and wellbeing - Traxson 1993.
