Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Strength-based learning - Children͛s Character Strengths as Means to their Learning Potential͛ is a Ph.D.-project aiming to create a strength-based mindset in school settings and at the same time introducing strength-based interventions as specific tools to improve both learning and well-being. The Ph.D.-project in Strength-based learning took place in a Danish school with 750 pupils age 6-16 and a similar school was functioning as a control group.
The presentation will focus on both the aware-explore-apply processes and the practical implications for the schools involved, and on measurable and experienced outcome demonstrating the interesting conclusion from the project concerning the difficulties for transfer of strength from the strength-intervention-program to everyday life at school.
