Creating a Context for Flow: The Importance of Personal Insight and Experience
Rathunde, Kevin
NAMTA Journal, v40 n3 p15-27 Sum 2015
Kevin Rathunde reflects on his early studies of flow in Montessori adolescents and surmises that adults need to experience their own flow in order to guide young people to peak levels. He recounts his early music experiences as having "peaked" and that he needed to come back to his flow of the past to fully enter into his work with flow as a researcher. He would like to study the impact of flow in teachers and parents to measure how adult's experiencing flow in their work impacts the children in their environment.
