Mrs Flatow was a teacher for more than ten years in the arts field in Canada and has a master degree in distance learning from the Quebec university, she is also a doctor of positive psychology from the American Graduate university of Positive psychology.
Mrs Flatow has a holistic approach, Holistic education aims at helping students be the most that they can be. Abraham Maslow referred to this as “self-actualization”. Education with a holistic perspective is concerned with the development of every person’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials. It seeks to engage students in the teaching/learning process and encourages personal and collective responsibility.
With Positive psychology, by building on historical educational principles and by taking advantage of the best of Positive Psychology, strengths-based education could drive a transformation of the American system of colleges and universities. Imagine an educational system that develops the individual strengths of our young people so they may realize their personal potential and fulfill a loftier goal — that of creating a thriving community of civically responsible and productive members; it may very well be attainable.
Involved in distance learning for ten years and in education for 28 years, the author has always sought ways to make education innovative, with the goal of improving student success. Following a reading of the book Les Intelligences Multiples by Howard Gardner, she noted that empathy and intuition were important components of distance learning, as well as of education in general. Her new book presents her reflections on intuition, empathy, and multiple intelligences.
