Hosted by the Administrative Services Section.
In pharmacy education, we are facing stressful and difficult challenges. We have the choice in how we respond: bold optimistic action or wring our hands with pessimistic fear. During this webinar we will talk about the utilization of realistic optimism, investigate 5 decades of optimism research, and show the power of different mindsets through a case study considering the impact of approaching a situation as an optimist or pessimist.
- Define optimism and related constructs
- Describe the impact of optimism on health and productivity outcomes
- Discuss the impact of an optimistic vs. pessimistic approach to a challenge
