DCNZ is going to host a 5-day workshop for Japanese school-related professionals from 14/Aug to 19/Aug at YWCA Hamilton.
We are going to have 13 people from Japan to learn how to support children at schools.
We visit Hamilton East Primary, Waikato University, and Edgewater college. Also we invited various people to share their experiences, such as school principles, counsellors, and school consultant. Also we invite a narrative therapist to facilitate a conversation to reflect experiences, learnings, and wonderings of the participants.
I am really looking forward to having this workshop. ...

We all have a universal need for connection. This workshop offers a way of communicating that leads us to connect from the heart. We offer a guide of reframing how we express ourselves & hear others. Instead of using habitual automatic reactions, our words can become conscious responses based ﬁrmly on an awareness based on what we are perceiving, feeling & wanting.
Get a taste of the language & skills of Compassionate Communication to empathically connect to your needs & the needs of others in order to resolve conﬂict peacefully.
This Introduction is based on the work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg (founder of NVC). • Develop & foster supportive relationships at home, with friends & work colleagues. • Break patterns of thinking that can lead to anger, arguments and depression. • Learn the skills of giving & receiving empathy. • Learn the power of connecting to your own needs.
A recent study published in Schizophrenia Research examines longitudinal data in a cohort of patients identified as “Ultra-High Risk for psychosis.” The researchers found that participants were more likely to develop manic symptoms if they were previously prescribed antidepressants. The study was unable to clarify whether this increased risk was mediated by the presence of more severe depression symptoms at baseline.
From Business Insider: According to a new study, PhD students are almost twice as likely to develop symptoms of poor mental health as the highly educated general population. About 51 percent of students surveyed said they had experienced at least two distressing mental health symptoms over the past week due to the stress and workload of PhD programs as well as bullying behavior and lack of useful feedback from supervisors.
