Goal: this task will improve the proficiency of the goal to make friends who will bring out the best in you (My Space).
Next Step - JP published this Cognitive Task at under Societal | Foster Care and Education | Interpersonal and Social Skills
Doers: 7 | Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: | Type: Primary | Level: 1 | Code:
Start: Dec 06, 2019 | When: | Duration: 10 Minute(s)
  • Think about the people who are “in your space” - the ones you hang with and whose advice you follow.

    These are the people who influence your thoughts and actions for good or bad.

    How much do you think you can improve upon the quality of advice you're currently being given?
  • If things aren't going in the direction you want them to, then it's time to find people who can bring out the best in you and challenge you in ways that will inspire you to do more and be more.

    You have the power to choose these people.

    Before you can begin, though, you have to know who you want to be.

    Pick a few one-word adjectives that best describe you.

    For example, it could be:
    *Just (as in "justice", meaning fair and equal)
    *Noble (meaning admirable)

    The list goes on, but you get the idea.
  • Let's get a visual about this concept. In the 2000 movie, "Finding Forrester", there was a teen who befriended a reclusive author for help in writing better.

    Their friendship brought more to each of them than either could have imagined.

    Jamal, the teen, helped the author overcome some pretty heavy stuff, including isolation and bitterness.

    Each had something the other needed. Each brought out the best in the other. This is the kind of friendship we're after.

    Go to the 'demo' tab and watch the clip from "Finding Forrester."

    Let us know what you thought when you've finished watching it.
  • Think about people you know. It could be a situation like Jamal's who happened to live in the same neighborhood as the author, William Forrester.

    Think very hard about the people you've known or lived close to or even lived with.

    List the people you've remembered who could be a friend to you and help bring out the qualities you described in Step 2.

    They should have similar qualities as those you want to be known for.

    For now, simply list the people. We'll deal with how to connect or reconnect to them later.
  • We're going to walk you through the steps in 'My Space' to reconnect with those people you listed - if it's possible to do so - or to find others with similar qualities who might have been right there under your nose all along.

    Are you ready to begin?
  • 'My Space' runs for 21 days without breaks for weekends or holidays.
