    20 Life Skills Not Taught In School

    in Entertainment

    http://Successful Student A resource for students to excel.


    From http://successfulstudent.org/


    The following is an excerpt from: Successful Student


    An education should involve learning life skills that a person will carry with them after college in order to navigate relationships and careers and be a well-rounded, successful person. This article has compiled 20 life skills not taught in school, which are valuable in life in general. Though high school and college is excellent in teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum doesn’t teach many aspects necessary to succeeding and thriving in life in general, such as financial responsibilities and investments, how to think logically–retaining information and not merely temporarily memorizing information, and how to apply such abilities to real-world scenarios which are bound to occur.

    Communication and Listening Skills with Dr. E.D. Brown

    in Self Help

    Clinical Psychologist Dr. E. Douglas Brown will be our guest speaker on this rebroadcast show. He says, "The art of speaking and listening demands more than a tongue, lips and ears. Before a toddler can utter a word, a toddler can recognize the sound of a word and associates it with pleasant or unpleasant experiences. Parents should teach their children that communicating and listening is easy, fun, and exciting." Many children don’t communicate what they are truly feeling unless they feel comfortable in doing so. If the environment is not supporting their spirit, if folks are berating them, abusing them, ignoring them, or just not being loving enough, they are not going to feel like opening up. That makes them more vulnerable to more negative energies.

    Improving the Communication Skills of Medical Professionals

    in Psychology

    Speakers: 


    Dr. Marjorie Melnick Heymann, Psychologist and former theater director, is a  Lecturer in Psychiatry at Columbia University. She will be interviewed by


    Dr. Evelyn Montanez, Ph.D, from NYU's Silver School of Social Work and is currently the program manager of elementary school based mental health promotion and prevention programs at New York Presbyterian Hospital. 


    Dr. Heymann's program, Communication Through Theater, uses professional theater/acting techniques to help medical professionals improve skills that are critical to the doctor/patient relationship.  Using dialogues, scripts, and written characters/patients specially created for this training, doctors get to practice and observe each other as they improve their communication skills.  The main components of the program that will be addressed during this interview include:


     - being present;


     - active listening;


     - active empathy; and


     - the final component where doctors, as themselves in their real life roles - interview patients played by other doctors.


     Dr. Heymann can be reached at:  heymannm@nyspi.columbia.edu
