Season 3, Episode 3 - Exploring Well-being & Happiness In Times of change and transition

On this episode you'll hear from Ruth, a Positive Psychology Teacher at UK Virtual School.

Ruth's passionate about making a real difference in the lives of the children she works with.

Here are 3 key points Ruth discusses about well-being and happiness in times of change and transition:

➡ Children need to have an outlet to be able to talk about the changes they're going through. 

➡ Kids shouldn't have to just deal with change around them, there needs to be support and understanding.

➡ It should be normal for people to come from different places, and the kids who come from different locations should be given extra support, if they need it.
