NEW Book “Cultivating Teacher Resilience” (2020)

I recently had a book chapter published on building Psychological Capital for teachers.

The book is called “Cultivating Teacher Resilience” and it is FREE to download.  It draws on the research of Positive Psychology in the workplace using Hope, Efficacy, Resilience and Optimism theory. This forms the acronym HERO. I have also developed some workshops called “Supporting our inner HERO”.

Journal Article – Positive early childhood education-EJAAP (2017) Baker, Green, Falecki

Daniela was a contributing author on this journal article exploring the Positive Psychology in Early Education

There are inherent links between early childhood educational theory and practice and the science of positive psychology. Opportunities exist for the implementation of positive psychology interventions and the harnessing of synergies between early childhood services and global pedagogies. Globally there exists regulation, pedagogy, standards and learning and development frameworks that mandate a focus on wellbeing but provide the profession with little to no tools, training or interventions in the science of wellbeing.
