Health Realization: An Innate Resiliency Paradigm for School Psychology.
Mills, Roger C.; Shuford, Rita
This paper presents findings regarding the role of youth's moment to moment thinking and state of mind in determining perception. These findings, along with discoveries about innate resiliency and an understanding of the underlying principles that describe how thoughts become perception, have demonstrated efficacy in empowering youth to regain their natural well being, self motivation, and healthy thinking. This paradigm, come to be known as Health Realization shows significant promise as an antidote to alienation and emotional disorders, and in fact brings to light underlying principles that determine how perception is formed and to what extent it is clouded by past experiences as opposed to the ability of any person to function in a clearer, wiser, and more objective, insightful state of mind. The logical implications of youth focused interventions are presented along with independently conducted evaluation and research data from multiple clinical and school based programs.
