Gratitude a Paradigm: Correlates of Wellbeing in Schools
Gratitude in its general connotation can be understood as appreciation for a favour or for simply any other thing, person or a phenomenon that a person may value in their life. Gratitude has been looked at through several lenses and perspectives. It has strong spiritual and religious correlates. Cross-cultural evidence points to religious involvement. Neuroscience research indicates how gratitude and wellbeing intersect. Within the Child Development framework, developmental, cross cultural and well-being paradigms are the most researched. This paper attempts to provide an overview on gratitude and why should it be used as an intervention for increasing the well-being and positive health of students and teachers. Several studies have been done to establish the positive effects of practising gratitude and how it aids in positive well-being and upkeep.
