Training Included in Annual Partnership
Even if you cannot attend an in-person event, we ensure that every P2 Partner School is prepared for success through training included in your annual partnership. This consists of the P2 100 Video Training to kick off the school year — and ongoing professional learning throughout the school year, such as P2 for Educators and 3 Slides.
And please remember, if you have any questions about implementing P2 in your building — we’re just an email, phone call, or text message away.
Ready to have your entire staff trained on the timeless nature of character strengths and positive relationships — and how they can positively impact your students? Our P2 Trainers deliver dynamic, insightful on-site training. Schedule a consultation with our team and tailor a training to meet your school’s needs.
P2 100 Video Training
The purpose of the P2 100 Video is to train your school’s entire staff in 3 hours or less — at a time of your choosing — to understand (a) the research driving P2 and (b) how to successfully implement the P2. It features 50 minutes, broken into 8 separate videos, of P2 co-founder Mike Erwin directly teaching the research behind positive psychology, character strengths, and the importance of relationships. Following Mike’s 8 videos, we have included videos of our Ed Tech Coordinator explaining how to access P2 resources — and videos of “P2 in Action” at partner elementary, middle, and high schools. We provide step-by-step instructions for how to successfully lead this training.
P2 for Educators
P2 for Educators consists of a series of presentations and resources designed to purposefully bring the benefits of The Positivity Project to school professionals. The purpose of P2 for Educators is to enhance school culture and individual well-being by deliberately engaging staff members, as adults, on the importance of positive relationships and character strengths in their own lives. These sessions create a time and place for educators to learn, discuss, and plan future actions based on current research connected to education, positive psychology, and the cultivation of individual and collective well-being.
P2 for Educators can be used in faculty meetings, professional development workshops, small study groups, or team meetings.
Students and educators thrive where relationships provide the foundation for learning, but, despite their best efforts, school leaders often struggle to find a way to create this kind of environment in their schools. Full schedules and competing needs can act as barriers to even the best of intentions. 3 Slides, a condensed version of P2 for Educators, offers time-crunched leaders an easy-to-use tool that brings professional P2 content to faculty meetings and other training settings in as little as 10 minutes.
