The Educators' Guide to Whole-school Wellbeing   
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 Educators' 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 was written with busy educators in mind.

"A highly practical book that provides the most comprehensive overview to date of positive education", Dr Toni Noble, co-author of the Bounce Back programme.

"Everyone working in this field would want a copy of this excellent book," Dr Sue Roffey, Director of Growing Great Schools Worldwide.

"Lucy Hone and Denise Quinlan, two of the leaders in the world's positive education field, have written this critical book for all educators (or any person working in a school)," Ryan Niemiec from the VIA Institute on Character.
