Sarah Rafferty is best known to fans as legal secretary and all-around badass Donna Paulsen on 'Suits', however the actress is now participating in Dove’s Self-Esteem Project, which touches young people, their teachers, and parents. Part of Dove's campaign is to shed light on the development and growth of young women and girls and to highlight the importance that self-esteem has in their lives. Obvious to many already, a study has shown that 90% of women and 86% of young girls in Canada have anxiety when it comes to their appearance, which means that they are unable to reach their full potential. Their perception often affects their health, their interpersonal relationships, and their academic performance. Since the launch of Dove’s self-esteem project in 2004, Dove has been promoting self-esteem among young people, particularly young women and girls. Sarah shares with us some of the aspects that made this campaign appealing to her. What has been your experience with self-esteem

From Evidence to Action

by Heather Deckard @ Blog - Cairn Guidance

By Heather Deckard

The theme of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) Annual Conference in San Diego, CA June 30- July 1 this year was From Evidence to Action. It was a great experience to represent the Dove Self Esteem Project (DSEP) as an exhibitor to share a range of curriculum-relevant teaching resources, developed in collaboration with educators and students. The DSEP tools take evidence to action and are proven to make a positive impact in body-confidence.

The DSEP Teachers program Confident Me[1]  has been proven to:

·      Improve body image

·      Boost self-esteem

·      Reduce social impairment (likelihood of opting out)

The DSEP lessons and materials were well received by school nurses from all over the US – many of whom shared they could use this project to augment their puberty lessons. Research shows that one in five high school students reported being bullied on school property. [2] We know that young people are bullied for a number of reasons, but appearance, including body shape, weight, and skin, are common. The school nurses we met with reported needing something on this topic for their middle school and high school students, as bullying, low self-esteem, and access to social media can impact student’s health and ability to learn. Those that do not teach were happy to pass the information onto their Health or Physical Education teachers.

The Evolution and Change One Thing films created by DSEP are engaging and impactful assets shared through the Confident Me! Toolkit, well-liked by educators and teachers, alike. Remember, the program is absolutely no cost! Find the programs here: www.dove.com/selfesteem

Cairn Guidance has partnered with the Dove Self-Esteem Project to reach young lives with self-esteem curriculum across the country.

Five good reasons to get an eye test that aren’t actually about your eyes

by Jo Middleton @ Slummy single mummy

I had a bit of an odd moment of parental pride in myself last week. Belle had been complaining about having problems with her reading – she says that it’s difficult to concentrate and sometimes the words look blurry or have lights in front of them – so I said that the next day I’d make her an appointment for an eye test as a first step. Off we went to bed. My memory is terrible, so I set a reminder on my phone. The next day when the reminder popped up I called them straight away. When Belle got home from school it was the very first thing she asked. ‘When is my optician’s appointment?’ she asked as she took her shoes off by the front door. ‘I made it…

Lasting Clinic Standing

by Samantha Lowe @ Blog - Cairn Guidance

Written by Samantha Lowe

Born and raised in Kentucky, I have seen how difficult it is to persuade the population on the necessity of in school and community based health education, where 25.2% of adults smoke cigarettes, with the national rate ranging from 9.3% to 26.5% across all states. Overall, Kentuckians tend to be less concerned with their health.

Kentucky residents were large beneficiaries of Obamacare and Medicaid expansion, but this did not change residents understanding of its' worth. Kentuckians then proceeded to keep red state traditions alive and vote for a president who promised to replace the system.  And, in 2015 the population voted in a Governor, Matt Bevin, who allows his conservative religious views to influence policy. Unfortunately, these decisions are beginning to elicit change, but not in the best interest of Kentuckians. Governor Bevin has described himself as “unapologetically pro-life” and is attempting to make Kentucky the first state to have residents without access to abortion services.

In the past year, the Bevin administration has impacted services offered to the community at two out of only three places in the state to receive women's reproductive healthcare. Planned Parenthood in Louisville no longer offers surgical services, while the administration forced theEMW Women's Clinic in Lexington to completely close its doors to the community.  Governor Bevin then ordered the EMW Women's Surgical Center in Louisville, KY (the last clinic available in the state to receive abortion services)  to close on April 3rd, 2017. Thankfully the ACLU and the EMW Surgical Center sued on the basis that the closure "will have a devastating impact on Kentucky women", while the ACLU has called the attempted action "an attempt to ban abortion in Kentucky." The clinic was granted the ability to stay open, but the fight for its longevity is not over. With two anti-abortion clinics on the same block the EMW Women's clinic in Louisville, KY has seen a lot of action, with volunteers lining up in orange vests to protect patients from harassment to protestors wearing the same vest attempting to redirect women into one of the pro-life clinics. The clinic has become the last battle ground for women's reproductive rights in the state.

Cairn Guidance believes that access to care, services and information is essential to all Americans. 

As the clinics license is up for reevaluation in May, the next few months are pivotal times of support.  If you are interested in expressing your voice please follow the link below:

#SpeakBeautiful

by noreply@blogger.com (Care Bears) @ Care Bears

A very unique caused-related marketing campaign I wanted to talk about is Dove’s #SpeakBeautiful campaign. In the past few years Dove has really stepped up in trying to change the way women view their bodies. I am sure many of us have seen the various viral YouTube videos created by Dove that tug on the heart strings and focus on empowering women and young girls. Dove’s newest campaign has taken a far more unique approach to a cause-related market campaign as they have teamed up with Twitter to diminish negative social chatter around self image. The campaign began roughly one year ago and continues to grow in success. People were encouraged to retweet a post on Dove’s Twitter account that includes the hashtag #SpeakBeautiful. Dove then automatically responds to the retweet with a link that directs the user to a custom microsite. This microsite includes a chart of Twitter data that is then compared to a chart showing other users tweets about self image and how the users tweet stacks up to theirs. A custom algorithm was created to highlight negative tweets in realtime that occurred during events such as the Oscars.This helped to identify the need for more positive self talk and less body shaming that circulates on Twitter.

According to Twitter, the campaign was incredibly successful as it earned over a billion impressions and reduced negative tweets over the past year about the beauty of others by 68 per-cent and self beauty by 40 per-cent.This campaign is attractive in more ways than one. The Dove brand focuses on empowering women and emphasizing that being attractive or beautiful starts from within and then reflects out. It is difficult today to find brands that are accepting of various skin colors, body types and shapes. Dove encourages women to love themselves and in doing so encourages them to be accepting of others “flaws”. There is beauty in imperfection. 

An interesting pitfall for the brand is that the same company that owns Dove also owns AXE, the very popular male body spray company. There is an inherent flaw in this as Dove and AXE contradict each other in their portrayal of women and sexuality. AXE commercials are well known for featuring thin beautiful barely clothed women and meanwhile Dove is featuring women of all sizes and shapes in their commercials. This calls into question if  Dove is simply playing on the insecurities of women to make money or do they genuinely care about how women feel? How would all of this play out on Twitter if someone had raised this matter? What is a celebrity sheds light on the Dove and Axe connection? I believe this cause-related marketing campaign is wonderful in theory, I just hope it doesn’t backfire and that the new hashtag associated with Dove doesn’t become #SpeakTruthful to reflect the companies contradictive marketing messages. This would not only have a negative affect on the brand itself but would also put Twitter in a very uncomfortable position.

Supports to Teaching Skills-Based Health Education

by Brian Griffith @ Blog - Cairn Guidance

By Brian Griffith, Health Educator and guest blogger for Cairn Guidance

Skills based health education has been around for years but has really gained support and steam over the last few years. Many state, district, and national conventions are hosting presentations that focus on integrating skills based health. Classrooms are shifting from “let’s do a fun project” to “let’s do a fun project that allows students to practice a skill aligned to content that will promote health literacy.” Simple projects, lessons that are embedded in PE or other content areas, or lessons that are done sporadically throughout the year do a good job with presenting what students should know, the what of the lesson. In order to develop health literacy, we also need to share the why and how. Why do they need to know this information and skill and how does it connect to wellness? What are you going to do with the information and how does it support a lifetime of health literacy?

Many teachers were trained on basic health topics and how to teach those independent topics. We know students learn best when they are shown the bigger picture of health (holistic approach) and how all aspects of health are connected. Shifting the classroom focus to skills based health isn’t difficult, the students will still be learning familiar topics. The difference is now the lesson will focus on a skill while teaching the content. Students will be learning about decision making while learning nutrition content, accessing information and mental health, analyzing influences and drug prevention, or one of the other skills with a content that has been identified by your state or local school system.

There are many resources available to teachers to support them shifting to a skills based health classroom.
I suggest reading these two books:
Skills Based Health Education” by Mary Connolly and

The Essentials of Teaching Health Education” by Sarah Benes and Holly Alperin

Jeff Bartlett, a great health educator in MA compiles a weekly Health Education blog here.

And, SHAPE America has been adding resources to the health education teacher’s toolbox.

RMC Health, located in Colorado, is another great resource that supports quality health education. From their website, “RMC Health has promoted the health and success of children and youth across the United States, and helped to transform the organizations that support them.” RMC Health has created skills based health models that provide guidance and skill cues by grade band/span. These health skills models have resources on how to teach the skills effectively to students.

Remember to always teach your local and state requirements. You don’t want to teach something that could get you fired or removal of your teaching certificate. Many requirements can be adjusted to address skills. If you know your curriculum, use CDC's Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT) to evaluate your information to see if you are covering items that CDC believes is critical to health education. The HECAT shares outcomes that students should reach based on grade bands/spans. The outcomes are divided into the National Health Education Standards. A teacher can identify a topic they want to teach (tobacco prevention), identify the grade band (6-8), identify the skill (accessing information), and then identify an outcome that matches their local curriculum (access valid and reliable tobacco-related prevention and cessation information from home, school, or community.) I might replace tobacco with nicotine because of vaping and e-cigarette use. I would use:  “Access valid and reliable nicotine-related prevention and cessation information from home, school, or community.”

For example, when a health literate person accesses valid and reliable information, we want them to identify sources of health information, explain how to find the source, and explain why it’s a good source. For example, RMC Health has identified six steps to access reliable information:

Step 1: Identify the Question
Step 2: Locate Accessible Resources
Step 3: Analyze for Validity
Step 3: Analyze for Reliability
Step 5: Determine the best Answer
Step 6: Reflect on your Answer

How do you “Analyze for Validity” or “Analyze for Reliability”? RMC Health has a resource students and teachers can use to evaluate websites here. Librarians at CSU Chico created a tool called the CRAAP for evaluating resources. CRAAP stands for Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose.

Health on the Net has been evaluating health information on websites for twenty years. They have a search tool individuals can use to locate valid and reliable information. The site is designed to support patients/individuals, medical professionals, or web publishers. Anyone can access the resources on their site. The site also shares the tool they use to evaluate information and students can use the tool to evaluate a website.

Health on the Net also create a quick guide on eight questions a person should think about when accessing a website.

The lesson will ask students to look for nicotine prevention and cessation services and evaluate those resources with one of the tools the teacher selects. What will the student with that information? The students could simply create a list of quality resources. Is that very engaging for your students? Does creating a list engage higher order thinking skills? If your school is tech focused, you could use google maps to pin key locations in the community. Students could also identify the barriers to health on that same map. Our main goal is to have them analyze these sites and identify ones that would provide valid and reliable information. Both of these activities meet that original objective. Should we provide a more engaging environment though? Students could work on advocacy by developing resources to be distributed at the local health department, hospital, clinic, PTA meeting, or health fair. This lesson could connect to environmental literacy by researching high pollution points of cigarette butts or vaping devices and organizing a student service project to clean up the area. Once the locations are identified, receptacles could be placed with signs about quitting smoking.  

Skills based health education means students are practicing skills and learning how to apply those skills in multiple settings. Teachers need to introduce the skill, allow students to practice the skill with multiple content areas, and then allow the students to be given a scenario where they have to identify the skills to use and successfully apply those skills. Then with any skill, those skills must be practiced over time. We all know having healthy citizens makes our communities and businesses more productive and better places to live.
