Positive emotion acts like a hidden reset button that repairs us psychologically and physiologically. Using positive psychology approaches to engage children and young people opens up their willingness to put in extra effort, improves learning outcomes, and enhances wellbeing for students and teachers alike. This online CPD course examines how happiness and wellbeing can be enhanced through the application of positive psychology in your own life and those of others. This course is delivered fully online allowing you the flexibility to learn from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.

This course will equip you with an in-depth understanding of the science of happiness and wellbeing and the relevance of positive psychology to the field of education and to your own life. It explores how we can use the principles and practices of positive psychology to build strengths and develop the skills flourishing in our pupils and ourselves. Positive education is underpinned by a solid research foundation from the science of positive psychology and is providing schools and educators, parents and students with new and exciting interventions and embedded practices which can be implemented in many different settings.

Key topics include the science of happiness and wellbeing, the role and value of positive emotions, and the effects of happiness and positive emotion on various outcomes including learning, creativity, health, resilience and longevity. Fascinating research and practical methods for promoting positive relationships, cultivating positive learning environments and encouraging ‘flow’ are presented, meaning the course is an ideal accompaniment for teachers devising a wellbeing curriculum. The course also provides you, the teacher, with the opportunity to practice techniques for enhancing wellbeing in your own daily life through practical exercises and experiments. Finally we look at how to prevent stress and burnout and detail specific approaches for enhancing your practice and your own wellbeing.
