Fortifying Patients, Students, and Trainees: Highlighting Positive Psychology and Resilience in Clinical and Educational Settings

There is growing evidence that personal characteristics such as self-control, grit, optimism, and resilience play a critical role in promoting mental health and mitigating psychiatric morbidity. Child and adolescent psychiatrists can contribute to prevention of mental disorders through interventions that enhance the capacity of young people to weather stress and maintain wellness. Participants are introduced to concepts of positive psychology and resilience and their relevance to clinical care; identify teaching strategies to actively engage learners in various educational settings, e.g., community, high school, undergraduate education, and graduate medical education; and develop teaching plans that employ components of positive psychology.
