Today, increasing numbers of young people are struggling through school and life with emotional and social needs that adversely affect their learning and challenge schools and welfare agencies. Bullying, anxiety, depression, youth suicide and substance abuse are major issues. This extensively updated and revised edition of Bounce Back! aims to help young people function well, both at school and in life. It provides practical strategies to help them cope with the complexity of their everyday lives and learn how to 'bounce back' when they experience sadness, difficulties, frustrations and challenging times. The program includes a teacher's resource pack, a supporting teacher's handbook and extensive online resources for upper primary students (Years 5-8). The teacher's handbook explores the theory, rationale and research behind Bounce Back! and outlines teaching strategies for the delivery of the program. The flip side contains nine curriculum units that explore topics related to student resilience, such as: developing positive and pro-social values, developing strategies for coping and bouncing back, finding courage in everyday life as well as in difficult circumstances, optimistic thinking and looking on the bright side, amplifying positive emotions and managing negative emotions, developing relationship skills, using humour as a coping tool, skills for countering bullying, skills and attitudes for being successful.

In recent decades there has been a shift in focus from psychological and social problems-what might be called the "dark side" of humanity-to human well-being and flourishing. The Positive Psychology movement, along with changes in attitudes toward organisational and societal health, has generated a surge of interest in human happiness. The Oxford Handbook of Happiness is the definitive text for researchers and practitioners interested in human happiness. Its editors and chapter contributors are world leaders in the investigation of happiness across the fields of psychology, organizational behaviour, education, philosophy, social policy and economics. The study of happiness is at the nexus of four major scientific developments: the growing field of Positive Psychology which researches the conditions that make people flourish; advances in the biological and affective sciences which have contributed to the understanding of positive emotions; Positive Organizational Scholarship, an emerging discipline aimed at investigating and fostering excellence in organisations; and findings from economics indicating that traditional markers of economic and societal well-being are insufficient. The Oxford Handbook of Happiness offers readers a coherent, multi-disciplinary, and accessible text on the current state-of-the-art in happiness research. This volume features ten sections that focus on psychological, philosophical, evolutionary, economic and spiritual approaches to happiness; happiness in society, education, organisations and relationships; and the assessment and development of happiness. Readers will find information on psychological constructs such as resilience, flow, and emotional intelligence; theories including broaden-and-build and self-determination; and explorations of topics including collective virtuousness, psychological capital, coaching, environmental sustainability and economic growth. This handbook will be useful to academics, practitioners, teachers, students, and all those interested in theory and research on human happiness.
