General Description

Positive Education has been defined as “the development of educational environments that enable the learner to engage in established curricula in addition to knowledge and skills to develop their own and others’ wellbeing”.

The concept, science and practice of Positive Education is becoming increasingly utilised in schools around the world, as a proactive approach to improve mental health, academic performance, social emotional learning and teacher/student wellbeing. Unfortunately, multi-level, strategic approaches are often sporadic despite the steady and worrying increase of mental illness and the burgeoning costs to families and the school community. Lack of time, human and financial resources together with stigma and confusion surrounding many mental health and wellbeing initiatives are often cited as barriers to buy-in.

This presentation demonstrates the importance of setting solid foundations before commencing the journey into positive education and highlights a simple and effective 5 step approach underpinned by scientific research to assist educators in creating a successful and sustainable Positive Education plan.
