Lecture Overview

Positivity affects perceptions, attitudes, and expectations. Positive emotions have been shown to increase feelings of energy, help you cope with adversity, and feel more optimistic about life. To successfully survive we need to create a positive culture that promotes camaraderie and teamwork. This lecture offers a great tutorial on using positive psychology to help you function in the day-to-day stressful environment healthcare workers face.
