Back to School with a Difference!

To help schools welcome back students after almost 6 months, Outside the Box has just released two FREE, extremely practical, resource packs for teachers – one for primary and one for secondary. Both are grounded in evidence-based interventions from the rapidly expanding field of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is the science of well-being. Each pack contains five activities, each focussing on five simple messages. Click on the Primary or Secondary cover below to access these free e-Book resources.
