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:
- Wellbeing as a philosophy of education
- The teaching approach to wellbeing
- Content that might form a wellbeing program in a school.
It is also a manifesto for a meaningful aim to education.
