Product description

Review

Building Happiness, Resilience and Motivation in Adolescents is a practical resource for use in schools. MacConville and Rae acknowledge that adolescence can be a turbulent time where difficulties can develop into mental health problems. They recognise that schools play a vital role in promoting emotional well-being, which will in turn enhance learning... a practical resource for practitioners who want an overview of positive psychology. (...) contains relevant activities and worksheets that are ideal for this client group. Author: The Psychologist

I would recommend this book for anyone working with groups of young people where it its desired to encourage personal and social responsibility, self-knowledge and self-confidence, as I feel this programme can deliver this and a lot more. Author: BACP Children & Young People

The book is a tremendously useful, user friendly book which can provide even the novice with the basic information and practical steps needed to introduce and then implement the programme in schools. While this text is aimed directly at adolescents, and so for use in secondary schools, the model would apply equally well in primary schools and the teaching resources easily adapted for younger children. Author: Debate

Ruth MacConville and Tina Rae have compiled a rich resource to enable schools to adopt a positive "strengths approach" to helping young people become more motivated, more resilient through difficulties and ultimately happier. Author: Nasen Special Magazine

This is a must-read book for all who want to help bring up young people in a psychologically healthy manner. Readable, well-informed, and very persuasive. Author: Dr Anthony Seldon, Master, Wellington College, UK
