Dr. Chan Hellman's Keynote Address from the 2016 Science of HOPE conference.
Positive psychology is an emerging field focused on the scientific study of human strengths and the capacity for individuals, groups, and communities to thrive. Within this field, Hope has emerged as one of the top strengths contributing to well-being. This seminar will present the science of Hope as a meaningful resource in our ability to cope with traumatic experiences and flourish toward future goals, and will also present “hands-on” tools to assess hope and develop strategies to attain established desirable goals. Finally, this seminar will present scientific studies conducted by the University of Oklahoma’s Center of Applied Research for Nonprofit Organizations that demonstrate the power of hope among children and adults who have experienced trauma.
