The research method was mixed method, which used theme analysis in the qualitative part, and in the quantitative part, it was carried out as a semi-experimental pre-test - post-test - follow-up design with a control group. In the design and compilation of the training package, the positive and Islamic psychology texts were analyzed using the Attride-Stirling's theme analysis method. Then, based on the extracted themes, an educational package was compiled and validated by implementing it on 4 people as a group of evaluators. In order to investigate the effectiveness of training package on grit, hope, resilience, self-control and academic procrastination, 30 students of the 10th and 11th grades were randomly selected and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups (15 students in each group). The experimental group was trained for twelve 90-minute sessions. To collect data, the Oxford Happiness Survey, Duckworth et al.'s Grit Scale, Miller Hope Scale (MHS), Connor and Davidson Resilience Questionnaire, Schneider's Self-Control Questionnaire, and Solomon and Ruth Bloom's Academic Procrastination Scale were used. Hypotheses were investigated using the repeated measures and covariance analysis. The results indicated that the happiness training package increased grit, hope, resilience and self-control and reduced the academic procrastination significantly and the effectiveness of the intervention was maintained until the follow-up period. Overall, the findings support the effectiveness of the happiness training package on motivational and emotional variables in high school students.
