Beyond Academics – Bringing Concepts from Positive Psychology into our Schools

$220.00

Educators today are under a tremendous amount of pressure to cover ground, meet deadlines and achieve goals. While academics are a crucial part of our role as educators, there is so much more that students need to learn in order to succeed. There are life skills that are equally as, if not more important than the academic material that students are required to know. Many of these skills have been researched by those in the field of positive psychology. In this course, we will learn about some of those life skills, the research behind them and how we can integrate the teaching of these skills into our classrooms, treatment sessions, and dialogues. We will be learning about the growth mindset, how to be more optimistic, the importance of gratitude, what it means to be a leader and other important concepts. This course is relevant to all who work in schools and with children of all ages in all settings.
