My Teaching Philosophy. To learn anything, these three dimensions must be involved: Cognition (thinking) Affect (feeling) Behavior (doing) If we have all three, chances are much greater that you learn will become part of your life. The Cognitive Model- the system. Thoughts. Behavior.
If we have all three, chances are much greater that you learn will become part of your life.

Why Gratitude Matters in Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
“I cannot tell you anything that, in a few minutes, will tell you how to be rich. But I can tell you how to feel rich, which is far better, let me tell you firsthand, than being rich. Be grateful…It's the only totally reliable get-rich-quick scheme.”
--Ben Stein, lawyer, writer, actor and economist
Gratitude has the power
to energize, and
to transform lives.

Analysis of Variance
The World-out-there, and the Lebenswelt( world as you experience it)
The Map Room
“the world as you experience it”
The internal monolog-Schemata (ideas, concepts, beliefs, thoughts, values
stories) determine what you focus on, and how you interpret the “World-out-there.”
(Change the internal monolog and you change “the world as you experience it”)
Three blessings Exercise
Every night before you go to sleep write down
three good things that happened to you that day
and why those good things occurred. If you can’t
think of three, add several things that make your
life better (e.g., a warm bed, good health, people,
clean water, electricity, medicine, eye glasses…)
It would help keep these blessings in a notebook.
