Leading Mindfully for Healthy and Successful Schools

Schools are increasingly expected to improve mental
health and wellbeing and academic outcomes for
students. This book seeks to take a ‘middle way’,
looking at how these perspectives might complement
one another and argues that healthy teacher-student
relationships require an adult that is both attuned to
their students’ needs and able to hold boundaries with
them. Setting out conception of leadership that is clear,
compassionate, and self-aware, Leading Mindfully for a
Healthy and Successful School draws on therapeutic and
educational research to identify key strategies for
improving wellbeing across the school that are
sustainable in the long term.
