  4. OurBiases

  5. “Our interactions are quite often influenced by our opinions.” -Anonymous- Subconscious, Unconscious and Implicit Biases Don’t you have a belt?? Who taught you to drive???

  6. Big mistakes happen when we judge a person by what we think we can see or hear…

  7. What do you see?

  8. Biases are normal - but children deserve to grow up happy and healthy, with their sexual boundaries intact. We have to ensure that our opinions and biases are not interfering with our ability to reduce harm to all parties despite who we may represent. Our professional interactions require us to acknowledge that, as the Iceberg reminds us, two people may not react the same (even identical twins!) – nor should we treat them as such.

  9. Dr. Davidson (Harvard educated doctor of psychology) proposes an entirely new psychological model of emotional styles, which are the result of the combination of six different dimensions: resilience, self-awareness, outlook, social intuition, sensitivity to context and attention. Everyone has a different combination, which makes them unique. According to Davidson’s research, human beings’ reaction to life events and different moods can be explained according to our emotional style, which determines the choices we make, the way we relate to others, and how fast we recover from adversity. He found specific brain activity correlating to individual responses.

  10. The six dimensions of emotional styles are… 1. Resilience – refers to how fast you recover from adverse events. 2. Outlook – refers to how you characteristically view life. Do you tend to be optimistic or pessimistic? 3. Sensitivity to context – refers to the way you modulate your behavior and emotional responses depending on that person you’re interacting with, or the environment you’re in.

  11. 4. Social Intuition and Context – Intuition refers to your capacity to grasp social cues, including body language, facial expressions and verbal expressions. Social context is similar to social intuition. However, social context specifically refers to how one responds to what is present and happening in the environment generally. 5. Self -awareness – refers to how tuned you are to the signals coming from your body and mind 6. Attention – refers to your ability to focus The Emotional Life of Your Brain, Richard J. Davidson, Ph.D. 2012

  12. ****Important**** We can’t and shouldn't expect that children who have experienced trauma or sexual abuse to have the same “emotional intelligence” as children who do not share that experience. Their experiences have shaped their perspectives of the world around them, in turn impacting how they feel safest in navigating an environment that has harmed them. Our approach and their approach will be based on each other’s capacities to accept, acknowledge, process, and understand information and behavior.

  13. Stress/Trauma How does the brain react to stress and/or trauma?

  14. The Amygdala is a set of two almond-shaped structures in our brain. They are essential to our ability to feel emotions and to perceive them in others. They also govern the many changes that emotions cause in the body. The chemical and physical reaction is almost instantaneous. 3. The Sensory Cortex Evaluates and assigns meaning to the stimulus 2. The thalamus absorbs the stimulus, then sends this message on to the appropriate sensory cortex (Hearing, Sight, Touch, etc.) for processing. 4. If the meaning is threatening, then the amygdala is stimulated to produce the appropriate emotional responses. 1. Stimulus: You’ve received a final summons to appear, and you’ve been given a ‘final warning’ re: being late for work. Now the only line seems to be moving very slowly… 5. Stress Response-incl. anxiety, fear, grief, anger, ‘Fight or flight’, etc., and reaction(s) based on the above

  15. The Sphere of Control: Think for a moment about your life. Write in two things over which you have total control, some control, or none at all. None Total Some Where do you think children are on the Sphere of Control? How do you think that informs their behavior, and ability to process information?
