Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison is a psychologist who specializes in manic-depressive disorder, which she has dealt with herself and detailed in her memoir An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness. But in this joyous talk delivered at the Teacher Wellness Conference, Dr. Jamison talks about her book Exuberance: The Passion for Life. She laments that psychologists in the modern day have focused almost entirely on pathology and have typically ignored studying the important emotions of joy and exuberance. She explains why exuberance is found in mammals with their capacity for play. She points to some areas in human endeavor that attract exuberant people, such as children's literature authors, scientists, and teachers. She reads some great excerpts from her book at the start and end of her talk. And then, she answers some questions from the teachers in attendance.
