Yvonne Yates and Cathy Atkinson from Manchester University explored the effectiveness of the HG approach in working with teenagers who were reporting poor subjective wellbeing. Their findings were published in ‘Pastoral Care in Education: An International Journal of Personal, Social and Emotional Development’. This beautifully written paper really conveys a lot of detail about the approach.
