ABOUT THE BOOK
In 15-Minute Focus: Growth Mindset, Resilience, and Grit, Dr. Raychelle Cassada Lohmann offers counselors and educators data-driven strategies to help students cultivate a growth mindset, nurture resilience, and build grit.
Each generation is shaped by the history of time, and at no other time has a young generation been exposed to so much adversity. This generation of young people has been exposed to pandemics, recessions, economic insecurities, racial and systemic injustices, mass shootings – some of those occurring in schools – and acts of terrorism. Is it any wonder mental health issues are soaring?
Despite all these obstacles, however, many young people will find healthy ways to cope, persevere, and rise to the top. Which leads to the question, “What makes some youth prevail and others struggle?” While there may be no clear-cut answer to this question, the root may lie in their ability to use the superpowers growth mindset, resilience, and grit. Although these three superpowers are related, they also serve distinct, diverse purposes to help us prevail and thrive. This book will share the transformational power of applying these crucial elements to our lives.
- Growth Mindset, Resilience, and Grit as superpowers
- Ways to create a supercharged environment
- The benefits of cognitive defusion
- The power of optimism
- Tips for increasing grit in students
- Ways to partner with families to empower resilience
This book is just as much about you as your students. When we learn to tap into our superpowers, we can teach others to tap into theirs, too. Growth mindset, resilience, and grit are the internal components that help youth maximize their potential, persevere, and bounce back from setbacks.
