Neil Porter and Dr Helen Street are helping you take home a little piece of Positive Schools 2014. Better than OK: helping young people to flourish at school and beyond features 27 authors – all expert advocates for youth mental health and wellbeing.
Co-editor Dr Street said Better than OK was a valuable resource to refer to when facing the daily challenge of helping children thrive.
‘Too often we go to conferences, become really inspired but, when back in our busy everyday lives, fail to put what we’ve learnt into practise,’ said Dr Street.
‘The book is like taking home 27 of our guest speakers and having them to hand when you have a tricky question, or simply need some positive support,’ she said.
Neil Porter said he was thrilled with the number of authors who came on board for the project.
‘The book includes chapters by Jane Elliott, Michael Carr-Gregg, Maggie Dent and Andrew Fuller to name just a few,’ said Porter.
‘In it, they share everything from moving and uplifting stories to the latest well-researched theories in Positive Education,’ said Porter.
Better than OK: helping young people to flourish at school and beyond is published by Fremantle Press. The book will be available at Positive Schools 2014 and from all good booksellers and online.
