A research done by Day and Gu (2014) showed that resilience of teachers is associated with other positive factors such as professional commitment, engagement, enthusiasm and job fulfillment. As one of the most comprehensive studies on teacher resilience, Mansfield et al. (2012) proposed four dimensions for resilience; professional related dimension, emotional dimension, social dimension and motivational dimension. Professional dimension in teaching context includes teaching competence and skills, organization, preparation, classroom management, facilitating effective learning, being flexible and adaptable. Emotional related dimension mostly concerned with personal attributes and attitudes includes self-belief and confidence, not taking things personally, sense of humor, ability to bounce back, emotion regulation.
2006). In social system, resilience is enhanced by social capital, which has trust as a central element (Folke, 2006). Transformability refers to the capacity of a SES to shift to a new state when conditions change (Olsson et al, 2014). According to Holling 1973; Folke et al. 2005 social ecological resilience is defined as the capacity of a system to withstand disturbances as well as to re-organise in face of uncertainty and greater change, while maintaining the same identity.
Due to stress, 25% of the students stated that they experienced low grades or dropped out from classes. Therefore, college students that are less stressed possess better management skills and a better mental well-being, which improves health and allows the student to excel academically. Possessing good management skills is very important for and beneficial towards the student. It allows the student to organise their school work and personal life efficiently and it affects their overall performance and achievements. According to (Stupart, 2017), a student’s inability to efficiently budget and manage their
As the existing data is less in the area of adolescents, the study can be used to build up from the existing data to contribute to empirical studies in adolescents using the PERMA model. The PERMA model used in the area of academic resilience is lacking, taking it again from the perspective of adolescents in educational setting. It is very essential to execute this study to explain how PERMA model is instrumental in overcoming the psychological difficulties that lead to academic difficulties, how this model can be helpful in creating academic resilience , and help students to maintain a good academic performance surpassing the difficulties that the student faces. It also addresses the concept of academic resilience, perhaps, the area of resilience that was not explored clearly so
A strong body makes the mind strong”. Avoiding a sedentary lifestyle while in university is difficult for many students, which is why an exercise that includes cardiovascular exercise should be used on a regular basis. Establishing a healthy lifestyle is important for people of any age, but it can be hard for students who have to manage with a variety of different time crunches and stresses for the first time. For example, most students will have to learn how to live away from hometown, make new friends and how to study effectively. Student health can always become of secondary necessary in this situation.
Three Conceptual Approaches of Resilience Thinking References Descriptions Resilience Approaches (Folke, 2006) The ability of the system to absorbing disturbances and achieving a balance through recovery Resilience as recovery (Carpenteret.al, 2009; Chelleri et al, 2016) The capacity to absorb pressures or destructive forces by adaptation to the change Resilience as compatibility or adaptation capacity (Folk et al, 2010) The ability of the system to absorbing disturbances and adaptively respond to the change through a positive shift towards transformation Resilience as change A common aspect of all these approaches is the ability to withstand, resist and respond positively to pressure or change. The first and second approaches have a definite understanding of the resilience as an inherent characteristic of the system that whether or not enables it to adapt to the pressure factor and, in other words, proves whether a system is resilient. Unlike the first and second approaches, the third approach notices the system’s capacity for compatibility instead of focus on the vulnerability of the system (Fig. 2). A resilient society can use the experiences made by changes to achieve better performance through this approach; so that it can react in a creative and innovative way to change rather than survival and self-restraint against the pressure factor (Rafieian et al,
The concept of resilience The concept of resilience is believed to have been propounded in the 1970s from the discipline of ecology Pisano (2012). According to (Holling cited Pisano 2012) resilience is defined as a degree of the perseverance of a system and of its capacity to absorb transformation and disorder and at the same time maintain the same relationships between populations or state variables. Also, in a bid to trace the origin of the concept of resilience, it was first presented by Holling in 1973 in the context of ecosystems which he referred to as the capacity with alternative attractors to persist in the original state subject to perturbations (Folke et al., 2010 cited Pisano 2012). The concept of resilience has been viewed by
On the one hand, stress causes students to feel anxious and uncomfortable, even affecting their health. On the other hand, stress is also a motivation for students to finish important events. This essay will discuss some of the problems with stress from three aspects: study, independent life and interpersonal relationships. In addition, this essay will discuss the corresponding solutions for these problems, which causes stress,
Academic Stress Upon University Students The compiled stressors upon university students, especially those who just came across this transitional phase, will cause them a severe academic stress. The relentless requirements of university life place a lot of pressure on students which in return stimulate a feeling of stress and worn out. Also, they face immediate challenges; according to Lumley & Provenzano (2003) “The immediate challenges that students face are the decisions they have to make about the presented career paths in addition to developing and negotiating new relationships, getting novel ideas that challenge their past-learnt views, and moving away from home.” To emphasize the importance of handling academic stress many
A sample consist of 120 students from six senior secondary school of North Western Delhi were randomly selected. The result of the study explained that there existed a difference in academic achievement of students having high, moderate and less stress. Students with high and moderate stress performed better as compare to the students with less stress. “Every study revealed that in every case and in every situation academic stress affected achievement positively or negatively .it impact on
