Becoming Buoyant shows teachers how they can help students to bounce back from daily setbacks and challenges. Drawing on the five main principles of academic buoyancy - confidence, coordination, control, composure and commitment - it investigates the evidence base from which the techniques are drawn and offers practical guidance on applying them in the classroom.

Emphasising the role played by internal and external factors, as well as wider school and community influences, the book offers practical guidance on:

  • Choosing and pursuing personal goals

  • Overcoming procrastination
  • Recognising and dealing with anxiety
  • How to use motivation, anxiety and stress management as ways to encourage and nurture self-efficacy.

Written by an experienced teacher and chartered psychologist, Becoming Buoyant is essential reading for all teachers that want their students to be resilient and flourish in the classroom.
