This past decade marked a notable shift for The Journal of College Admission.
In 2015, it was redesigned and moved from a peer-reviewed research journal to a quarterly magazine offering practical tips, research-to-practice information, member profiles, upcoming events, and news you can use.
But the one thing that hasn’t changed across the years is the high quality of articles from our members.
Enjoy taking a trip down memory lane as we look back at some of the best Journal articles of the decade.
Student mental health has been a hot topic among educators for the last decade or so. But, too often, efforts to address this important issue have centered on students who are already struggling.
In contrast, When Likes Aren’t Enough: A Crash Course in the Science of Happiness, focuses on prevention. The book, our latest #NACACreads selection, shines a light on positive psychology strategies that can be used by all students to increase their sense of well-being.
“Positive psychology studies the behaviors and mindsets that contribute to psychological health, well-being, and flourishing,” author Tim Bono explained during this week’s #NACACreads chat. “…(It’s) interested in getting in on the front end of the mental health crisis by identifying behaviors that can proactively build well-being and provide a buffer against distress before clinical interventions become necessary.”
Listen to an excerpt from the book and make plans to join us for an important discussion focused on student mental health and well-being. Bono is an assistant dean and lecturer in psychology at Washington University in St. Louis (MO) where thousands of students have taken his popular courses on the Psychology of Young Adulthood and the Science of Happiness.
