About The Event
On May 11th, Lucy Sloninsky, MD, Karla Schlags, LMFT and author Samantha Boardman, MD joined the CalPsychiatry Psych Media Discussion Group to discuss Dr. Boardman’s book, Everyday Vitality: Turning Stress Into Strength.
During this discussion, Karla Schlags and Drs. Sloninsky and Boardman talk about the benefits of shifting the focus of therapy from exclusively negative experiences to including the positive aspects of a patient’s life during therapy. The group further confronted the bias against including more than difficult emotions into the therapeutic setting as a result of the harmful effects of toxic positivity.
