Book Description

Teaching Happiness is a brand new resource designed to help you teach young people the attitude change, knowledge, practice and skill developments that are essential for building happiness in a creative and engaging manner. Ten interactive sessions cover different aspects of happiness. Each session is largely based on group discussions and partner work encouraging pupils to learn about themselves and others.  Throughout the programme pupils are introduced to positive psychology insights including: * Flexible learning skills * Learned optimism * Concepts of signature strengths * Developing a 'growth' mindset.  The Teaching Happiness programme is designed to be delivered with a sense of fun and celebration to engage and inspire all learners. Young people are encouraged to practice the skills and ideas introduced throughout the sessions in their everyday lives, with a core element of the programme being the home-practice activities. The programme is suitable for a range of ages.  Examples of feedback from pupils are included throughout the text to reflect real-life experiences and to help support staff in their delivery of the programme.
