    Appreciate Dan Goleman’s presentation and insight… I’m wondering if the quiz questions need to be relooked at and identify whether there are a couple that are not linked up to the correct answers… pretty sure I should’ve scored 100%…

    Interesting broad brush way of framing and reframing information such as creating ways of testing habit modes outside of therapy. Sometimes, critical words were said by dropping voice and so difficult to follow. Gut liked it.

    What a stimulating workshop
    I’m curious to know the natural ways in which school counselors can support middle school students ability to sustain attention and self regulate in the school setting ?
    This year much of my focus has been on triggers , cues and behaviors , as well as supporting self regulation .

    I was intrigued by Goleman’s conceptualization of mindfulness as a mode for internalizing the even, hovering attention of the therapist, which in turn supports the development of executive functioning abilities the individual can apply in everyday life.

    Goleman’s work is important for not only mental health practitioners but also in educational settings. Interestingly, I overheard my husband (a MD) listening to a webinar that said that ‘emotional intelligence’ is starting to be looked at for admission to some medical schools. The movement to transform education to include social and emotional learning as well as training in mindfulness is greatly needed in our culture today. Goleman makes a profound point that such a focused effort may potentially result in the lack of a need for mental health interventions, including psychotherapy, in the future (probably, not in this lifetime!).
