Through this course, participants will learn practical strategies for enhancing well-being in schools, for both students and teachers alike. The concept of well-being will be explored and the field of Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being, will be outlined. Positive Psychology offers many evidence-based strategies for nurturing resilience and well-being, and participants will be given the opportunity to explore them on a personal level, as well as gaining ideas for applying them to the school setting.
