A practical guide to getting started, best practice process and effective implementation.
Dr Denise Quinlan and
Dr Lucy Hone
While many schools understand the need to promote and protect wellbeing, they often find themselves stuck, not knowing where to start. Who’s going to run the programme? Do we need a curriculum? Shall we buy one or create our own? Which is the best wellbeing model for our school? How will we fit in the required professional learning on top of everything else we already do? Is wellbeing just another fad? How do we get students involved?
A companion guide for schools, The Educator’s Guide to Whole-school Wellbeing (Routledge, 2020) supports schools to create individualised and contextualised wellbeing plans. With chapters addressing why wellbeing matters, change dynamics, measurement, staff wellbeing, coaching, cultural responsiveness, and how to build buy-in, it is the first of its kind. Balancing research and practice, with expert practitioner insights, this book provides guidance from around the world, in a user-friendly format, designed with busy educators in mind.

“I have just finished one of the best books I’ve read in the field of positive psychology – I would put this in my top 5 (out of hundreds). This is nothing less than a masterclass on application and implementation science of wellbeing in education…”.
