Teaching happiness and well-being in schools : learning to ride elephants (Second edition)

See all formats and editions

This updated edition is a theoretical and practical guide to implementing a well-being programme in your school.

The book covers three areas: well-being as a philosophy of education, the teaching approach to well-being and the content that might form a well-being programme in a school.

It is also a manifesto for a meaningful aim to education. There has recently been an explosion of interest in positive psychology and the teaching of well-being and 'happiness' in the PSHE world in schools and many teachers are looking for clear information on how to implement these potentially life-changing ideas in the classroom.

This book provides an introduction to the theory of positive psychology and a practical guide on how to implement the theory in (primarily secondary) schools.

It is written by Ian Morris who worked under Anthony Seldon at Wellington College which is well-known for its well-being and happiness curriculum.
