1. Creativity Graber (2004) Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 CREATIVITY What I give to life through my creativity. Creating a work or accomplishing a task. When

we engage in life using our talents and strengths, we experience fulfillment through the goals that we reach, the tasks that we master, and the jobs that we complete well. Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 EXPERIENCES What I receive from life through experiences. These

include: Encounters with others in relationships of all kinds. Experiences with nature, culture or religion. Experiences can be just as valuable as what we create or what we achieve. Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org

All Rights Reserved 2017 ATTITUDE The stance I take toward life through my attitude. The attitude one takes toward unavoidable suffering; ie, finding meaning in suffering. The noblest appreciation of meaning and the deepest possible meaning. When we rise above the difficult circumstances of life and use the experience as an opportunity to grow, we transform our suffering into an achievement, a triumph of heroism.

Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 Even when creative and experiential ways of finding meaning are limited, we can still find meaning in the midst of suffering by suffering with dignity; by bearing ones suffering courageously rather than feeling degraded by it.

Meaning Triangle SelfAssessment Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 SELF-DISTANCING The uniquely human capacity to distance ourselves from a situation and look at it from the outside while remaining totally aware of our psychological integrity.

Allows us to detach from anxiety related to selfinterest, thus providing a more accurate observation of our experiences. Allows the space and time to access our spiritual values (conscience, compassion, will to meaning, responsibility) and to choose to respond with the right attitude in accordance with these values. Institute for Life & Care www.lifeandcare.org All Rights Reserved 2017 SELF-DISTANCING (CONT.)

Most commonly used with traumatic material. Provide psychological distance from event. Promote healthy resolution and post-traumatic growth. Can also be used in everyday occurrences where we are faced with a situation in which we are tempted to react from self-interest, but wish to respond with a growthoriented attitude. Wong, P.T.P.(2016).

REFLECT RESPON D Read the situation. What is actually going on here? What part am I playing? Be honest! Reflect on the situation. Where am I coming from? Where is the other person coming from?

The Stop Light Model has allowed you to move from reaction to response, activating your noetic dimension and incorporating your spiritual values. Rumination puts you back in the reactive phase, decreasing your physical health. If you feel that there are unresolved issues regarding the situation, agree with yourself to let it go for now, and give yourself some additional time before looking at the situation again.
