Aims: The purpose of this study was to investigate the flourishing of Tehran teachers based on the local model of psychological flourishing and its comparison based on demographic variables.
Methods: In this descriptive study, 412 high school teachers from Tehran were selected via multi-stage cluster random sampling method. Instrument was HSFS psychological flourishing scale (Hojabiran Rezaei, Bigdeli, Najafi and Mohammadifar, 2017) . This scale measures 3 components including sense of satisfaction / happiness, individual achievement/ competency and community involvement. The results were analyzed by descriptive statistics, multivariate analysis and one-way ANOVA.
Results: Descriptive results showed that 4.6% of the teachers were languishing, 41.8% were moderately flourishing and 53.6% were flourishing. The status of teachers in the individual achievement/ competency component is relatively desirable but it needs more attention in terms of satisfaction / happiness component. A comparison of flourishing based on demographic variables showed that married teachers achieved higher scores in all three components of flourishing. Official teachers also achieved higher levels of community involvement than unofficial teachers. There was no significant difference in the rate of flourishing based on other variables (gender, grade, major, parental education, experience and ethnicity.
Conclusion: According to the results, it is suggested that a single educational-interventional program be developed in order to foster and promote teachers' flourishing. In developing an intervention program, more emphasis should be put on the emotional dimension of the flourishing of teachers, the differences between married and single teachers and formal and informal teachers should be considered as well.
Keywords: epidemiology, flourishing, sense of satisfaction, happiness, competency, achievement, community involvement
