Positive Psychology Interventions – Supporting mental health and wellbeing in your school community

Supporting mental health and wellbeing in your school community

Embedding positive psychology practices into your school community is one thing. Maintaining a sustainable commitment to such practices that allow everyone to be engaged as life-long learners and advocates of their mental health and wellbeing is a whole new ball game.

Michelle’s presentation will explore a number of positive psychology interventions that can be used within an educational setting to support the promotion and enhancement of student wellbeing, sustain positive practices to achieve positive teacher wellbeing, and look at ways in which a school can educate parents to support their families.

  1. What are positive psychology interventions? – Exploring the science and research.
  2. PPIs in the classroom – How do we teach and embed such interventions into our curriculum to promote and enhance student wellbeing?
  3. Exploring PPIs to support teacher wellbeing –
  4. Sustaining positive practices to achieve positive teacher wellbeing
  5. Educating parents to support families
  6. Shifting the culture within your school to support whole school change.
Presented by Critical Agendas

Michelle Falzon

Michelle is a mother of 2 beautiful children, an educator & student wellbeing coordinator, lover of learning, and advocate for positive mental health and wellbeing. After facing an unexpected tragedy almost 9 years ago that completely changed the trajectory of my life, she now sees herself as a survivor and not a victim. So, it is with this strong mindset that she dedicates herself and the work that she does each day to supporting others.

She’s a firm believer that knowledge is power, and when we are taught to recognise our own God-given strengths, then we are empowered to take action each and every day to be the best version of ourselves. As an educator and student wellbeing coordinator, she strongly advocates for education travelling far beyond the four walls of any classroom. All her work within positive psychology and coaching psychology is created to support individuals develop and sustain habits of good health and positive thinking that is life-long and sustainable. She strives to have people acknowledge and understand that they themselves are the authors of their own stories that they so wonderfully create in life.
