There has recently been an explosion of interest in positive psychology and the teaching of well-being and 'happiness' in the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) world in schools and many teachers are looking for clear information on how to implement these potentially life-changing ideas in the classroom.

This book provides an introduction to the theory of positive psychology and a practical guide on how to implement the theory in (primarily secondary) schools. This second edition is a theoretical and practical guide to implementing a well-being programme in your school. The book covers three areas:

  1. Wellbeing as a philosophy of education
  2. The teaching approach to wellbeing
  3. Content that might form a wellbeing program in a school.

 It is also a manifesto for a meaningful aim to education.
