Trainer, Speaker and Author in positive education
Frederika holds an International MSc in Applied Positive Psychology from Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge) and is currently working towards an EdD (Professional Doctorate in Education) at the University of Derby. In her Masters’ dissertation, supervised by Prof. Ilona Boniwell, she developed a new model (LeAF – Learn and Flourish) for whole school Positive Education, an area she has a particular academic and professional interest in.
Frederika is also a former teacher (PGCE, University of Huddersfield). She is a published author in Positive and Character Education (Character Toolkit for Teachers, with Elizabeth Wright, 2018; For Flourishing’s Sake, 2020) and has been working as a trainer/lecturer, speaker and consultant in Positive Education since 2013.
In addition to this work, Frederika is European Representative for IPPAed, the International Positive Psychology Association’s Positive Education division. She has presented at Positive Education and Positive Psychology conferences worldwide (IPPA World Congress Montréal & Melbourne, IPEN Dallas, Fort Worth & London).
As an Italian, German and British citizen who grew up in an international environment in Luxembourg prior to moving to the UK, where she now lives, Frederika is fluent in English, Italian, French and German and can present and train/teach in these languages. She also speaks a little bit of (now very rusty!) Spanish and Luxembourgish.
