“Positive psychology is grounded in the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within them, and to enhance their experiences of love, work and play”. Positive Psychology Center 2016

Known as the ‘Guru of Mindset’, Carol Dweck inspired and delighted an audience of 250 educators in Wellington a couple of weeks ago. We have been delving into her work with Year 12/13 classes in our Positive Psychology Programme for several years and more recently with the girls in Year 6.

Dweck says we should be asking our children, “What are you struggling with now?” It is in times of ‘fabulous struggle’ when our brain persists with a problem, when we don’t give up, and we ask for help and look for more information, that we make many new neurological connections.

The simplicity of her presentation which covers nearly 50 years of research, adds to her enduring popularity. Have a listen to her TED talk here.

So what will be your fabulous struggle this week? Your brain will love you for it. 

Jenny Williams
