In this session, we tap into the power of positive psychology for increasing staff and student engagement, enhancing SEL, and
tapping into people’s intrinsic motivations. Positive brains have a biological advantage over brains that are neutral or negative.
Based on the works of positive psychology researchers, Martin Seligman, Laurie Santos, Ed Diener, Shawn Achor and more, this
interactive workshop provides a long lasting approach to improving culture with your class and school.
