Gratitude in Education

Teachers at all levels of education will find this book practical and inspiring as they read how other educators have engaged with challenges that reveal different dimensions of gratitude, and how some have discovered its relevance in gaining greater resilience, improved relationships and increased student engagement. In the first comprehensive text ever written that is solely dedicated to the specific relevance of gratitude to the teaching and learning process, Dr Howells pioneers an approach that accounts for both dilemmas and possibilities of gratitude in the midst of teachers' busy and stressful lives. She takes a contemporary and philosophical view of the notion of gratitude and goes beyond its conceptualisation simply from a religious or positive psychology framework. Exploring real situations with teachers, school leaders, students, parents, academics and pre-service teachers - Gratitude In Education: A Radical View examines many of the complexities encountered when gratitude is applied in a variety of secular educational environments.
Product Details



"An immensely readable book about a very complex notion ... this is the first time gratitude has been considered from the perspective of teachers in educational contexts and brings the abstract into the praxis of everyday relational dilemmas in education. This makes the book potentially ground breaking ... [the author] has written a unique text that makes an important contribution to the growing literature on positive education." -The Journal of Positive Psychology "This is an extraordinary book. It takes us on a journey of discovery about the powerful effects of the practice of gratitude by the author and many teachers and students ... I believe that after reading the book many teachers and students will do things differently next time they step in the classroom. They will be more grateful for the opportunity. They will better balance their giving and receiving. They will be more empathic and humble, accepting that `we are not perfect, and so we have no right to judge or criticize others or, importantly, ourselves.'"-Dr Jan Libich (La Trobe University, Australia) See Dr Howell's TEDx talk "How Thanking Awakens Our Thinking.
