Flourishing Classrooms: A PERMA Approach Talk + Course Preview

Flourishing Classrooms: A PERMA Approach Talk + Course Preview

The COVID-19 pandemic has had profound impacts on education, with school closures and shifts to online learning across the globe. The Economist reports that nearly 153 million children have missed more than half of all in-person education during the period, with lingering effects till today. As a result, students’ learning has been slowed, and their wellbeing has taken a toll.

Positive education, an empirical approach to optimal student learning and wellbeing, offers valuable practical applications to guide students to thrive in the classroom and beyond. As students cope with massive shifts in their learning experience, it is now a crucial time to implement more informed strategies in the classroom and incorporate mental wellbeing within the curriculum.

Join the upcoming talk with TSPP’s trainer Matthew Koh, as he takes you through evidence-based insights to empower teachers to create flourishing classrooms with Positive Psychology.


Join us in this session, where you will:

  1. Learn how to apply the PERMA approach in education
  2. Discover strategies to build flourishing classrooms
  3. Understand the importance of bringing Positivity into Classrooms


The talk will be followed by the Course Preview of Positive Psychology programmes.
