Transcript of Nevitt Sanford

Theory of Challenge/ Support Nevitt Sanford Challenge/Support Readiness In Sanford's theory, readiness means that people can only grow when faced with a challenge they have the capacity to approach and overcome. (both psychologically and physically) Challenges and Support Too much support, and the student will never really learn what they need to grow and develop.

Too much challenge, and the student will become frustrated and possibly quit trying.

Both challenges and support can be intrinsic (a challenge or support within yourself) or extrinsic (a challenge or support from someone else or the environment). References Dalton, J., & Crosby, P. (2008). Challenging college students to learn in campus cultures of comfort, convenience and complacency. Journal of college & character, 9(3).

Sanford’s challenge & support theory. (2011, April 28). Retrieved from http://imjoeboe.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/challenge-support/

Ward, K., Trautvetter, L., & Braskamp, L. (2005). Putting students first: Creating a climate of support and challenge. Journal of college & character, 6(8). Individuals excell when:
-they are supported in a way that is
related to the situation
-they are faced with challenges that
meet their readiness
-the two conditions are balanced How does this apply
to being an RA? We need to be able to recognize
when our residents are facing
challenges and be able to give
them the resources to get
the support they need
for them to grow.
