Classes For Schools
Parenting doesn't come with a manual. Parenting classes usually emphasize discipline and communication rarely the importance of identifying and managing emotions. Positive psychology gives us the tools necessary to do this. Learn about the multitude of empirically based theories regarding increasing happiness and well-being. All classes include the latest research on what constitutes lasting happiness and well-being. All classes and workshops are delivered in groups of 10 or more participants. Improved quality of communication and relationships are among just a few of the benefits of participation in these workshops.
Based on the latest research in positive psychology educators will learn how to improve student performance in the classroom. Educators will learn techniques they can implement which will enable them to enhance student achievement, motivation and satisfaction. The training can be an hour, a day, or a few hours over several days. We adapt to your needs.
Life is full of challenges, no one is exempt from them. We can’t change this, but we can change how we respond to these challenges. For one hour, one day a week, for four consecutive weeks participants will learn tools that will enable them to effectively overcome the difficulties they encounter in their lives. They will also learn techniques that will allow them to teach their children these skills.
Studies show that learning to work hard is as important to academic success as intelligence. Research tells us that the non-cognitive skill of grit - passion and perseverance for long term goals - is just as important to achievement as is talent. A growth mindset fosters grit and has shown to improve academic achievement. For one hour, one day a week for four consecutive weeks parents will learn tools that will enable them to foster in their children the non-cognitive skills science tells us are essential for academic success.
When parents are asked what they most want for their children, the near-universal response is, "I just want my kids to be happy." Unfortunately, most parents aren't taught how to effectively achieve this goal. According to the science, when it comes to raising happy children, there are a few basic skills parents can teach their children. And the research is very clear - happier children are better students and more likely to turn into successful, accomplished adults.
