How to Get Started When Taking a Whole-school Approach to Wellbeing: Reviewing the best of science and practice
While many education centres globally understand the need to promote and protect wellbeing, they often find themselves stuck – not knowing where to start, what to prioritise, or how to implement whole-system wellbeing change.
Dr Denise Quinlan and Dr Lucy Hone will share practical insights to help you create individualised wellbeing plans to fit with the culture and context of your learning institution. Sadly, there is no one size fits all when it comes to wellbeing, but a decade’s work with diverse schools and learning centres around the world has helped identify the processes and practices that lay solid foundations.
