Starting discussion: the psychology of change by Elsa Urmston

Introduction Elsa Urmston
What is change? As the Oxford Dictionary says: “An act or process by which something becomes different.” Change can be a thing or a process. It can be seen as a threat or an opportunity. How do we weather change? Feeling or lacking a sense of control influences our process or struggle with change. Change will always happen. How do we manage change and how can we move forward with change even if it’s scary? I have a strong interest in positive psychology and I’d love today to become an interaction around what I have to share and who you are as professionals.

Participants discussion

“Change is tension. Change is turbulent.”

“Change is a process. Moving with it or resisting. In a way we also search for change.”

“There are personal aspects that greatly influence how we experience or process change.”

“There is a directionality to change. Toward goals or from something.”

“Change has an origin and a timeframe.”

“We are in much less control than we think we are. Allowing others control and influence can paradoxically empower others while furthering our own process.”

“How I approach change depends on my expectations and also on the context.”
