An opportunity to support of student wellbeing and self-determination from the inside out.

Helen will involve delegates in an interactive, in-depth exploration of Contextual Wellbeing. Helen’s model of Contextual Wellbeing describes the four key dimensions of social context that shape student’s identity, attitudes, beliefs and behavior. There is little point in investing time and energy in a new wellbeing program or strategy unless, the messages of that program or strategy are reflected in the social context of the school; the people, the policies and practice, the social norms, and the physical spaces of school life.

Wellbeing programs and strategies support students from the outside in. Attention to Contextual Wellbeing ensures we are building students wellbeing and self-determination from the inside out.

This Positive Schools 2018 Pre-Conference workshop will run from 9:30 – 14:30 on the Wednesday preceding the main conference, in every state, at either the main conference venue, or adjacent to the venue.

QLD Wednesday May 16th
WA Wednesday May 23rd
VIC Wednesday May 30th
NSW Wednesday June 6th 

Arrive at 9:00am to register. Arrival tea and coffee, morning tea and lunch provided
