Notes from the Maine School Counselor Association annual meeting, with keynoter Bob Bowman, are at @MESchoolCounsel

via TweetDeck

Bowman: Being resourceful is more important than being independent. Be actively involved. “We is me” - @MESchoolCounsel

via TweetDeck

Bowman: Help kids stretch their strengths so they can approach their challenges in a more skilled way.

via TweetDeck

Bowman: Think of successes in your early years. Select words that describe your strengths. List: drive.google.com/file/d/0ByRIQX…

via TweetDeck

Bowman: Get students to find 3-5 words to describe personal strengths. Reinforce hope.

via TweetDeck

Bowman: Being “nonjudgmental” isn’t possible. Modeling positive regard is, in itself, judgmental - @MESchoolCounsel

via TweetDeck

Bowman (counseling): Be trustworthy. Be encouraging. Help them find their personal strengths and apply them to challenges -

via TweetDeck

Bowman (counseling): Be accepting. Judge a child as worthwhile and full of potential -

via TweetDeck
