Mental Distress in Children - the key construct for understanding their future mental health and wellbeing. - A Linkedin article
LINKEDIN ARTICLE: https://www.linkedin.com/post/edit/6209109907610832896
"Thinking of your child as behaving badly-
Disposes you to think of punishment.
Thinking of your child as struggling with something difficult -
Disposes you to help them through their distress."
Mental Distress is the gradual or incremental accumulation of inner anxieties, emotional pain and mental confusions which can trigger negative thought patterns, associated behavioural responses and the release of increased levels of stress hormones. These in turn can further exacerbate feelings of the loss of personal power or control that the child has over the world which they inhabit. Increasingly debilitating emotional responses can then interfere with their effective daily functioning in both educational and social settings impairing their future security, development and sense of wellbeing.
"It is not so important for us to know what is wrong with a person as for us to understand what has happened to them." Jacqui Dhillon, mental health trainer.
"There is no more apt window on the soul of a society than the way it treats its children." Nelson Mandella.
Maslow's principle of self-actualisation or self-fulfilment is pivotal to an individual developing good mental health and a sense of wellbeing, as stated below:
Education must provide the opportunities for self-fulfillment; it can at best provide a rich and challenging environment for the individual to explore, in his own way."
"The bearer of these presents is Michelangelo the sculptor. His nature is such that he requires to be drawn out by kindness and encouragement. But if love be shown him and he be treated really well, he will accomplish things that will make the whole world wonder."
