Positive Education, Oxford University Press, Geelong Grammar School

Oxford University Press published Positive Education: The Geelong Grammar School Journey in the UK on Thursday 7 May as part of the Oxford Series in Positive Psychology. The book explains the key tenets of Positive Psychology and examines the School’s practical application of the science and research of Positive Psychology through the development of its ground-breaking Positive Education programme. With a foreword by Professor Martin Seligman and contributions from world leaders in the field of Positive Psychology, such as Roy Baumeister, Tal Ben-Shahar, Barbara Fredrickson, Felicia Huppert and George Vaillant, the book fills a crucial space between academic theory and practical application, making it a landmark publication.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of how Geelong Grammar School became the first school in the world to implement Positive Psychology. Expert introductions offer excellent overviews of the theory and research of Positive Psychology, whilst case studies from the School provide concrete ideas and examples of Positive Education in action. The integration theory and practice aids teachers and educators to apply Positive Psychology to their own working environment, inspiring them to embark upon their own journey with Positive Education.
