"Dr. Maureen Gaffney visited GGS back in 2015 and over several days made a powerful contribution to our community. For many years we have provided each Year 11 student with a copy of Dr. Gaffney’s book as a gift from their Head of House. This book is a genuine gift to the reader, as it is armed with practical advice and wisdom for being at your best. Maureen talks about the necessity of integrating the negative in Positive Education and extends this to talk about not thriving in spite of difficulties, but actually thriving because of the difficulties. With a comprehensive overview of the importance of positive emotions, Gaffney also reminds us of the importance of not supressing or avoiding negative emotions. One of our favourite books for providing a rich overview of the science of wellbeing, which is complemented with a robust set of ten tools for nurturing wellbeing. Which of Gaffney’s ten strategies will resonate most with you? Maybe Strategy #3 – Control your attention, Strategy #5 – Take charge of your mood, or Strategy #9 – Stop sabotaging yourself. Enjoy reading and learning throughout this powerful book."
