This updated edition is a theoretical and practical guide to implementing a well-being programme in your school.

The book covers three areas:
well-being as a philosophy of education,
the teaching approach to well-being and
the content that might form a well-being programme in a school.

It is also a manifesto for a meaningful aim to education. There has recently been an explosion of interest in positive psychology and the teaching of well-being and ‘happiness’ in the PSHE world in schools and many teachers are looking for clear information on how to implement these potentially life-changing ideas in the classroom. This book provides an introduction to the theory of positive psychology and a practical guide on how to implement the theory in (primarily secondary) schools. It is written by Ian Morris who worked under Anthony Seldon at Wellington College which is well-known for its well-being and happiness curriculum.
