10/7/22 - Session 1 "Introduction to Positive Psychology & PERMA" - This is the Way to Wellness
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7
Live on Zoom
“This is the Way to Wellness” is a new, monthly faculty wellness professional development series intended to enhance campus well-being by sparking conversations on topics such as positive psychology, wellness-based teaching practices, and the science of happiness. Each session will be facilitated by Kelly D. Holder, PhD, and will include a brief introduction to a foundational concept followed by facilitated discussion amongst faculty peers.
The first session is “Introduction to Positive Psychology & PERMA - The 5 Essential Elements of Well-Being.” Positive psychology is built on five building blocks: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishment (PERMA). In this session, we will review the ways PERMA has been used in academic medicine to improve wellbeing. Additionally, we will explore the ways we can apply these concepts personally and professionally.
By participating in each session, participants will be able to better understand foundational concepts in positive psychology and well-being theory, which may then be applied personally and professionally. Explore the relationship between human connection and well-being through experiential peer mentorship.
Please note that this course is designed to be engaging for all participants. Attendees are encouraged to turn on their cameras and actively participate in the program.
This session is open to all faculty, staff and trainees.
