School-based Positive Psychology Interventions

Three Good Things exercise: a simple 'taster' of the positive psychology (strengths-based) interventions included in the 'School-based Positive Psychology Interventions' resource

School-based Positive Psychology Interventions: a review in article format of many strengths-based interventions that can be implemented in schools.

    I like the Three Good things/Blessings exercise and one I use most nights before going to sleep. Being grateful and thankful puts one in a positive mood and is a good way to drift off to sleep. 

    I found the article on school based posiitve pyschology interventions interesting. There is plenty of research about the effectiveness of positive school environents and the focus of PB4L and IYT being used in NZ is to create posiitve school climates and cultures so that learning and behaviour are greatly encouraged and enhanced.

    Kia ora Claire

    I also like to do this '3 good things exercise' but could do it more often!  I also found this activity and others mentioned in the article to be useful in the classroom, not just for the well-being of the students, but also to keep the teacher's mindset positive.  I like your link to IYT and PB4L.  I have also found Restorative Practices help to provide a positive school environment, most particularly within the 'hidden curriculum' that is how people treat each other in their human relationships.
