Anxiety and Negative Thought Patterns

Clinically, negative thinking patterns are known as cognitive distortions. Negative thought patterns are an extreme and inaccurate way of thinking, such as:  He’s late coming home from work, he must’ve been in an accident. I failed that exam.

It is painful to consider suicide or fear that a loved one is considering it – yet many are too afraid to bring up the topic because they don’t want those challenging emotions to surface.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect (DKE) is a cognitive bias that causes people to overestimate their ability or knowledge in a certain area. This is usually because of a lack of self-awareness that prevents them from having an accurate assessment of their own knowledge or skills.  DKE was first presented in 1999 by David Dunning and Justin Kruger at Cornell University.

The Value of Free Play for Children’s Mental Wellbeing

Over the last decade, research has shown that unstructured free play has been rapidly declining despite the acknowledged benefits. The COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged teachers and parents to see the benefits of unstructured play when schools were closed or virtual. Instead, there is often an emphasis on resume-building and more structured play. Extracurricular activities such as clubs, sports, language lessons, or music have replaced unstructured play. Yet the research tells us that open-ended, unstructured play allows children to be more engaged, attentive, and use more complex language skills....
