The construct of gratitude is gaining wide attention in the field of positive psychology.
Gratitude diaries can be used as a simple, intentional activity to reframe our daily experiences and encourage positive reflection.
The majority of studies have used adult participants and there has been limited research into how gratitude diaries can have a positive impact on children's well-being.
Our speaker, Tara Diebel, is an Educational Psychologist working for Hampshire County Council and completed her professional doctorate at Southampton University in 2013.
She will talk about her research in primary schools that evaluated whether gratitude diaries could improve a child's school experience and social well-being.
The talk will be held in the function room at the Wig & Pen pub, George Street, which is wheelchair accessible.
This event is free and open to everyone. There is no need to book so please just turn up on the night. The talk will commence promptly at 7pm.
Wig & Pen,
9-13 George Street,
