A brief description:

Over the past few years, the notion of a “positive intervention” has risen to prominence, as it was discovered that certain intentional actions can be effective in increasing and sustaining happiness and other positive states, as well as in reducing depression and anxiety in children and young people. Despite the evidence for their effectiveness, these interventions are not necessarily perceived as "sticky" by the actual end user, and it is often difficult to integrate these into daily functioning beyond the classroom environment. The session will focus on the emerging practice and evidence behind using more pragmatic tangible tools and facilitation methods in positive education to effectively communicate positive psychology concepts and solutions (including emotions, strengths, pp interventions, and best self representations) to child and teenage audiences.

Come prepared to play, build, manipulate and even stick!
