How Research about Youth Mental Health Assessments Helps Us
Understand Discrepant Views about Social Experiences
“Seeing the world differently than other people is an everyday part of life. From choosing what to watch on Netflix or where to go for dinner, to figuring out who should lead a country or how to raise your kids, we often encounter difficulties with getting on the same page, when different people have to come together to make one decision. Too often, seeing things differently even leads us down a path where we try to distinguish between “right” and “wrong” viewpoints, even though most times we can think of legitimate reasons for why we have these differences in opinion. Based on “lessons learned” from over 60 years of research about how different viewpoints play out when we assess people’s mental health, I demonstrate how our differences in viewpoints have the power to improve the way we make decisions in everyday life.”
