Introducing Positive Psychology
We are delighted to welcome leading international author, speaker and Managing Director of the Positive Psychology Institute and CEO of APPLI Dr Paula Robinson who will be working with staff and parents about the science of Positive Education to help build habits of wellbeing at school, work, and life.
Dr Paula Robinson has worked with over 500 schools throughout Southeast Asia and Australia and Scots All Saints College is delighted to be the first college within the Central West region to adopt this new ethos into its student wellbeing and pastoral care approach.
Dr Paula Robinson said harnessing positive energy in our daily lives can have profound benefits on mental health which should be a priority for every school and family.
