Description

The 4 Pillars of Well-Being offers a conceptual framework for promoting well-being based on the  research of Dr. Richard Davidson and the Center for Healthy Minds at the Univ. of Wisconsin. By looking at this area as a process of developing well-defined skills, we have found it a very useful framework for elevating concern with well-being to center stage in schools today - for students and  adults. In the second portion of this session, we will introduce a core systems thinking tool, the systems thinking iceberg, which helps people addressing any complex problem differentiate the surface-level events from deeper patterns and structural sources of the problem. Each participant in the session will get to practice using the tool and helping one another in thinking through its application to a problem they are wrestling with - just as do students and teachers in the global network of schools pioneering the compassionate systems framework.
