Bring the Power of Positive Psychology Into Your Classroom

The 8 week online module begins July 2, 2020!

Educators today are faced with unprecedented access to information about happiness, wellbeing and life satisfaction. Not only is it important for you to be happier, more resilient, empowered, motivated and successful, but it's also more and more critical that your students learn these skills too.

Positive Education uses wellbeing science to encourage, enable and enhance skills of resilience and wellbeing. We'll equip you with a foundation in positive psychology science and enable you to instantly apply the knowledge in the classroom. Like SEL and Character Education, Positive Education prioritizes the so-called "soft-skills" (relationship building, self-compassion, growth mindset) but unlike many programs offered to schools, the focus is whole-school- from teachers & students to parents and the greater community.

The PEC Program will empower you with the tools for building greater positive emotions, engagement, flourishing relationships, greater meaning and purpose, accomplishment and vitality.

Details

The PEC Program meets online, via Zoom. Participants will complete weekly "quests" to deepen their learning and create a final project which will support them in uniquely bringing Positive Education into their school.

Online classes are held for two hours, once per week for a total of sixteen weeks, or twice per week for a total of eight weeks. In-person training happens over five consecutive days. In order to earn the certificate, participants must attend at least 60% of the live weekly online classes.
