1/ WARNING: POSSIBLE TRIGGER LANGUAGE, EVENTS or SITUATIONS
Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

Parental involvement in child's learning journey is uncommon in #Pakistan. As the Chairperson of Parents Council 2016of @Gemsfirstpoint I, my team & school worked together 4 the wellbeing of our children. #antibullying policy,core values,parental coffee mornings to name a few...
There is no concept of a Parent Council here. All the work is to be done by the school. Schools don't share the wellbeing and progress of the child with the parents. PTM is the only way to find out. Neither the school nor the parents are interested in forming an alliance...
Parents don't know if their child is suffering from depression, is being bullied, or is under stress. Peer Pressure exists. All we care is the grades. Same is with the school. We may find a career councillor but not a councillor in schools who is actively involved with the kids.

A Christmas well-being thread.
Today I got shouted at by both Judge & prosecutor.

In fairness, what they were asking was reasonable from their perspectives. The problem was, to answer, or at least in the way they’d have liked, could have been to the detriment of my client.

1/10
So acting in clients best interests, I was unable to help court/pros & received said shouting.

Of itself, this is no big deal. Although not a common occurrence, being shouted at when trying to protect clients interests, is also not uncommon. we have thick skin after all.

2/10
But then I ponder.

Should it be part of the job to receive a shouting.

Had my prosecutor stood back and thought, he would have realised I couldn’t answer and why not. The judge was once at the bar and must have experienced similar issues in practise...

NOW: Well-Being Across America
Learn how policy-influencers and practitioners use data to tackle some of the greatest inequalities our communities are facing, and how evidence-based data increases greater understanding of well-being of communities.
#communities #inequality
[Today’s highlighted work] gave me goosebumps which you don’t normally hear about this kind of data. - David Erickson, Ph.D., @NewYorkFed
For many American families, insecurity and a sense of falling behind prevail.

Thread on how #inclusion, or lack thereof, affects #Wellbeing:

⚠️: upcoming #vulnerability moment

Do you ever feel Iike you don’t belong in the spaces you occupy?
I do.
The feeling is isolating & discouraging.

The reasons why are complex, complicated. /1
#medtwitter #burnout
I will confess here that being in #dermatology and in #academia magnifies these feelings.

Being courageous, stepping outside comfort zones, making your voice heard... it’s good, necessary, but the way you’re perceived and received matters. It has impact.

It’s complicated.
/2
The cycle of self-confidence can be a positive or negative one, and often starts early in youth, affected by things such as parental upbringing, privilege, etc.

That cycle can build on itself, and have huge implications for one’s professional and personal wellbeing.

A few weeks ago I noticed that one of the on-call doctors didn't seem quite himself.

We're not friends outside of work + I'm not his supervisor, but he works in an acute specialty so is regularly in the ED seeing patients + that day something just wasn't quite right.
(1/3)
I asked him if he was ok and he replied, "Yes, I'm fine", but I wasn't convinced.

Later on I spoke to him again - I said that I had noticed a change and was worried about him.

This time he told me everything... things he hadn't told his colleagues, his friends or his GP.
(2/3)
Reframing the question really changed the response I got and we then spoke about what had been happening, how he was feeling + how it was affecting him and his work.

Together we were able to make a plan to help him move forward.

Thread: Blatant #ClimateDenial has lost. The new conflict is whether #ClimateChange is a crisis requiring urgent social and #economic transformation, or something we can adapt to incrementally while carrying on with business as usual. 1/40
2/ A recent opinion piece by Bjorn Lomborg in the @globeandmail is representative of the 'business as usual argument'. Let's deconstruct it to see how this gets passed off as the pragmatic point of view, and why it's false. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…
3/ The basic tactic is this: provide a few common-sense truths to gain the air of pragmatism and then feed us the story we're desperate to hear: that everything will be fine, that growth will outpace #ClimateDamages and life can carry on as usual.

🎉Today marks the start of the our launch week! 🎉 We'd like to introduce ourselves and tell you a bit about what we do.

We research the social science of #ClimateAction

We're a partnership between @cardiffuni @uniofeastanglia @UniOfYork @OfficialUoM & @ClimateOutreach. 1/5
We're funded by @ESRC and our work focuses on four challenging areas which have substantial #climate impacts, but which have so far proven difficult to change:

🥕Food and Diet
🚲Transport
🌡️Heating and Cooling
🛒Material Consumption

2/5
We set out to align the positive outcomes of action on #ClimateChange with those in other domains like #health and #wellbeing.

We want to identify actions that provide other #cobenefits – like cleaner air, lower bills, or fairer communities.

3/5

1. Welcome to the 1st presentation of today’s #HCTwitterConf19 #NoPressure I'm @louoboyle & I'm asking WHY SHOULD I BOTHER? Provoking & reflecting on why #MakingConnections is increasingly crucial to all facets of our practices, thinking & futures within & beyond HE @HumCommons
@humcommons 2. #SetTheScene #WorkLife
To-do lists can seem to get ever longer & the timescales to complete even shorter. Mindful that #Wellbeing #SelfCare are always priority, why spend time engaging with communities like @HumCommons online?

The capacity to compartmentalize may be an overlooked important psychological construct with positive implications for subjective #wellbeing #ThursdayThoughts
It may be related to the capacity for #play, one of the most under-appreciated activities to enhance subjective #happiness & adaptation.
Some cutting-edge, relevant #empirical evidence: 👀 #Psych

“The study is the first to examine how distinct types of leisure are associated with oxytocin release, researchers said.”

@RichDuszak 1- MT @Aiims1742 “This @katekelly article reads like a paid infomercial for EPIC (in fact, I actually looked for the “This is an advertisement” disclaimer). Would have been nice to have interviewed one or two end users of the chocolate factory product.”

@RichDuszak @Aiims1742 @katekelly 2- Nice digs, clever marketing spin, BUT Epic highly disliked by users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships w #patients, #ptexp, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @JackMurtha hcanews.com/news/ehrs-are-… @BarbaraMcAneny @meggerber

(THREAD) Imagine walking into school - #FirstDaysofSchool. The most significant thing that anyone wants is to know that they belong, feel included, cared for, to feel significant, to know that they matter. As educators, families give us their greatest trust each day #MoralPurpose
From the moment students "step" onto school grounds, everything they see, hear, feel and experience gives them a message about whether they are valued, they matter, if this is a safe place to be in, grow, take risks, challenge, create, to LEARN. #3rdTeacher #GlobalCompetencies
We know that in order for Ss to learn, they must feel safe & included. Neuroscience helps us to understand that when ANY one feels unsafe, theyre not able to learn, engage in complex thinking. Solid #assessment is important & necessary, but without feeling safe, its not effective

A new meta-analysis examining the link between #Facebook and #wellbeing! Let me explain why it cannot tell us much about anything (1/n)
1) It does not actually look at the link between Facebook use and well-being, it looks at 'problematic Facebook use' and well-being (2/n)
2) Spot the bias - are these search terms going to show you the whole scope of research? (3/n)
