Positive Education and Work: Less Struggling, More Flourishing
What is the meaning of positive education and work? What are the pedagogical premises of well-being? What about the foundations of flourishing at work? Is this knowledge enough for a holistic picture, or is there still a need for some special perspectives of well-being?
This volume is based on the positive psychological research approaches implemented in various research settings that cover the whole lifespan. It critically discusses the idea of positive education and work and their connection to life-long positive development and flourishing from multiple perspectives.
It can serve broadly as a textbook or course literature for education and work-related research studies. It is research-based, and will appeal to educators and researchers in many disciplines, such as the social sciences, social work, educational administration, and leadership, although it will also be of interest to anyone with an interest in positive psychology.
