Dr. Szilvia Fodor, psychologist, assistant professor at ELTE University, Budapest, Hungary talked about Wellbeing and Performance at school.

Positive psychology is a new scientific approach of 21st-century psychology, aiming to increase the quality of life, prevent pathologies and enhance subjective well-being. As Peterson (2008) says „positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living”. During the workshop the concept of wellbeing will be introduced, with a special emphasis on Seligman’s PERMA model. We will also examine how this model can be applied in an educational context to students and teachers. In addition, participants get a personal insight of their own well-being and some practical advice about how to enhance wellbeing in a school context.
