Stigma-Free UC webinar: Positive Psychology — Erasing the Stigma of Mental Illness
Positive psychology, with its focus on what makes human beings flourish, offers practical tools for supporting resilience and wellbeing. Robert Bilder, director of the Mind Well pod within UCLA’s Healthy Campus Initiative, will discuss the potential of positive psychology to improve emotional health in the second installment of the Systemwide WellBeing Initiative’s “Stigma-Free UC” effort, on Tuesday, March 20 at 2 p.m.
Bilder is Chief of Medical Psychology – Neuropsychology at UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and director of the Tennenbaum Center for the Biology of Creativity, where he is particularly interested in studying dimensions of brain function to help eliminate artificial boundaries between mental illnesses, between health and disease, and between the brain mechanisms involved in exceptional and everyday creativity.
