Positive psychology has been an identified field for many years, but only recently has it been recognized as useful in schools. This session will share the basic tenets of positive psychology and how it can be used in school settings to promote improved student outcomes. Presenters will explain how using proactive methods such as positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) improve outcomes for the most at-risk students.
