Event description

Description

Dr Brian Marien and the Positive Group invite you to a stimulating evening revealing the results of cutting-edge research into improving and maintaining psychological health, well-being and resilience in schools. Leading experts in wellbeing and academic attainment will deliver insights from the latest advances in psychology and neuroscience, currently being delivered across the UK as part of the Positive Schools Program.

Positive has delivered the Positive Schools Program across 23 schools and 2 academies over the past 2 years. The program has now touched over 240 Teachers and Staff Members, 10,000 students, and we will hear how they have incorporated Positive's cognitive and behavioural tools into their daily lives at school, and the benefits this has already offered in helping young people to fulfil their potential.

We will also be discussing some of the data collected and new developments Positive and the schools are planning to make this year, including a purely app-based program for all staff members and for Parents of the students, as well as some exciting case studies around Action Research which some of our pioneer Positive Teachers have been running.
