PERMA Plus is the work of Professor Martin Seligman. He has done extensive work in the field of Positive Psychology. Seligman’s PERMA Plus dashboard is made up of nine building blocks of a flourishing life, they include:
- Positive Emotion, (feeling good)
- Engagement, (being absorbed into tasks/experiencing flow)
- Relationships, (being connected to others)
- Meaning and (living a purposeful life)
- Accomplishment) (feeling a sense of accomplishment)
- + Physical Activity, Nutrition, Sleep and Optimism
Lots of our whole-school work this year will be aligned to the PERMA plus framework; this includes Character Strengths and Behaviour Education Code. Watch this space for more information!
