Thriving/Positive Psychology with Text Study Network
This Network is designed to foster a collective space for teachers to reflect and process their year of teaching during the pandemic both as professionals and as people outside of school, especially when there were many boundaries impacted and removed. In this community of learners, participants will deepen their understanding of Thriving drawing on the theory of Positive Psychology through a Jewish lens and build up their practical skills to implement in their classrooms. Each session will include text study and a focus on the tools and outcomes of Thriving, along with a takeaway challenge to apply to their practice.
