Finding flow: How Positive Psychology can inform curriculum in the early years
Join Sandi Phoenix to discuss how the early 20th century psychology still heavily influences education contexts, and how early 21st century psychology can move us from managing behaviour ‘problems’ to solution focussed planning as an embedded part of the program. The session will also consider how early years educators can find moments of flow in play, looking for curriculum that emerges in uninterrupted periods of sustained play, and how that has lasting benefits on psychological development.
