Kay Redfield Jamison - Exuberance: The Passion for Life

From Channel N:
Keynote address at the 19th Annual Conference of Sarah D. Barder Fellows (Teacher Wellness Conference). Examines positive emotions often overlooked by psychology: how exuberance and passion influence society by affecting risk-taking, resilience, achievement, creativity, and teaching. Also looks at exuberance and mania: at what point does passion become pathological? Jamison's an excellent speaker. This talk is based on her book Exuberance: The Passion for Life. I encourage you to read it - I loved it, it's a fantastic and inspiring book!
