Research Digest
  1. New evidence that the “chaotic mind” of ADHD brings creative advantages
    By Christian Jarrett. People with ADHD seem to find it easier to break free from prior concepts and examples.
  2. Story-listening shows promise as an intervention for people living with dementia
    By Emma Young. Given that there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s, anything that can help with memory is surely to be welcomed.
  3. Encouraging self-compassion may help people with chronic pain lead more active, happier lives
    By Alex Fradera. The findings refine our understanding of which mechanisms are more likely to increase pain acceptance.
  4. Many undergrad psych textbooks do a poor job of describing science and exploring psychology’s place in it
    By Tomasz Witkowski. Out of 30 textbooks, there were just 3 mentions of Kuhnian paradigms.
  5. Growth mindset doesn’t only apply to learning – it’s better to encourage your child to help, than to be “a helper”
    By Emma Young. Children primed to think of themselves as "helpers" were more discouraged when things didn't go to plan.

Dacă faci o greșeală, recunoaște-o. Orice încercare de a o ascunde se va întoarce în cele din urmă împotriva ta. La un moment dat pacientul va simți că nu ești sincer și actul terapeutic va suferi. Mai mult, admiterea deschisă a greșelii este un model bun pentru pacienți și un semn în plus al importanței care o au pentru tine.
