Promoting Character Strengths in the Classroom
October 5th (7pm)
Facilitator: Fiona Forman

Fiona will outline the 24 Character Strengths, along with ways for teachers to develop them in the classroom.
Character Strengths are one of the pillars of Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being.
24 Character Strengths have been identified (Peterson & Seligman, 2004), including
  • Optimism
  • Gratitude
  • Bravery
  • Perseverance
  • Creativity
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Curiosity
  • Perspective
They are the elements of our personalities which help us to live a happy, meaningful and fulfilling life.
Identifying and then using our Character Strengths is associated with a wide range of benefits including increased self-confidence, vitality and better relationships.
