Is Your School Flourishing?
Does your school have a scientifically based well-being or pastoral care program? How much does your school focus on welfare in comparison to creating a proactive well-being strategy? Are your students and staff flourishing? How can your school help reach the target of 51% of the world’s population flourishing by 2051 – as articulated by the Founding Father of Positive Psychology, Professor Martin Seligman?
Why Positive Psychology in Schools?
Whilst historically, schools may have aimed for academic excellence as sole evidence for their success, there are growing numbers of schools who are now acknowledging the need to develop students in a more holistic way – with a stronger focus on well-being, Much of this is in recognition of the increasing statistics on psychological distress and mental illness in our children and adolescents, and the realisation of the need to take a more proactive, rather than reactive approach to mental health.
The Positivity Institute is a leader in Positive Education in Australia and globally. To learn more about our approach, you can read Dr Suzy Green's recent chapter on "Positive Education in Australia" in the "Handbook of Positive Psychology in Schools, 2nd Edition".
