Assignment for Book #3
There are two parts to this assignment: one for Resilience Break-Through and one for Resiliency Advantage. All parts of both assignments should be thorough in incorporating the key concepts from the reading you have done in each of these supplemental texts.
Moore talks about "flipping the switch". Choose an individual/story from recent news headlines or news article that you feel represents a situation that exemplifies "flipping the switch". You may use electronic sources (youtube, social media) but must be respectable sources that can be cited.
Write a summation paragraph (along with citation link to the story/article) about the individual and their story so the situation is understood (the background). Moore discusses the cycle of "flipping the switch" and listed four steps involved in that cycle. Take your story through all four steps of that cycle. Describe/define /analyze your interpretation of the individual in the story you selected in each of these four steps.
Moore discusses his list of top 60 resiliency heroes. Choose your top 3 resiliency heroes (not from his list, but from your own), and…
why you chose them
the resiliency characteristics, supported by the reading you have done, that this hero exemplifies.
what you learned from them in the way of resiliency skills
It probably came as no surprise that attitudes and beliefs play a key role in how resilient a person will be. Siebert discusses eight principles affecting resiliency. Siebert also discussed how it became apparent from his research, that resiliency was stunted in childhood as "they were trained to fit into a slow-to-change world where disruptive change was infrequent, temporary, and resolved by the authorities in charge". As children, we were not encouraged to engage with the experiential world, rather we were to fit in and assimilate to societal norms. Also, Siebert discussed different types of problem solving that were key to resiliency.
Choose 3 - 5 of the transformational changes Siebert outlined on p. 193 that you see as the "Big Ones" for you in regards to resiliency. Define and analyze why this emerged as the most important to you.
From the information presented on skillful problem solving, describe and define the benefits of the three types of problem solving discussed. Additionally, define your views on the impact and value of good and varied problem solving skills on the process of resiliency.
