This unit explores positive psychology and wellbeing education for the enhancement of both student and staff wellbeing. We look at the larger context of teacher burnout and the high rates of mental health issues and suicide ideation in students. Wellbeing school initiatives, such as positive education, values education, and various mental health programs, are investigated with a view of developing a personal philosophy and pedagogy based upon evidence-based best practice.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to identify and demonstrate understandings of:
1. Cultural and contextual issues impacting on student and staff wellbeing in educational settings;
2. Pedagogy and curriculum development for promoting student and staff resilience and wellbeing;
3. Remedial principles and practices for dealing with compromised student and staff resilience and wellbeing; and
4. Applying the above as whole-school programs and to educational settings in general.
