Bluth, K.
January, 2020

The Emotional Curriulum explores new research which promotes the emotional well-being of children and young people in schools. Dr Sarah Taylor-Whiteway talks to academics about their research and how it can be used and applied in schools.

In season 2, episode 2, Dr. Karen Bluth, Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychiatry, University of North Carolina, shares the model of self-compassion and discusses how this can be key to supporting the well-being of adolescents. We discuss how a sense of humanity can be a key component in helping adolescents manage their own emotions and how we can help the young people we work with to develop their sense of self-compassion through mindfulness and self forgiveness.
