Identifying signature strengths reduces challenging behaviour

Dr Martin E.P. Seligman and his team asked young students to discover what their ‘signature strengths’ were, in other words the character traits unique to them, through which they could continue to achieve positive outcomes in all aspects of their lives. For example, ‘I am patient, friendly, positive and kind’. The results demonstrated evidence for a reduction in challenging behaviour, better empathy for others and a higher degree of curiosity in lessons.

My Shared Pathway – My Relationships Workbook

mysharedThe following extracts are from the ‘My Relationships’ workbook produced by My Shared Pathway:

“The relationships we have with other people are very important to our well-being and our recovery from mental health difficulties. We have relationships with many different people in many different areas of our life. We have relationships with our family, our friends, our neighbours, people who help support and care for us, all the professional people we come into contact with and, while in hospital, the other people we live with on the ward. We will probably have relationships with some professionals we might not have had relationships with befor

“All of our relationships have an effect on our lives, on how we feel and on how we behave. Those around us can have a very strong influence on us and our recovery from mental health difficulties. We will need to build relationships with people who understand where we’re coming from, how we are now and how we want to change. There may already be people in our lives that support us and we will need to make sure we maintain these. There may also be relationships that have a negative effect on us, and we may require help deciding what to do about these”

“In this part of My Shared Pathway, we’ll look at all your relationships, the ways you relate to other people and how to make sure your relationships are helpful to you in your recovery from mental health difficulties. We will look at how healthy, positive relationships can help reduce your harmful risks, while supporting you to take positive risks to live the lifestyle you want to lead.”
