Webinar: Messaging hope when dispair seems normal

How do we apply the Science of the Positive in times of uncertainty? What does positive messaging look like during a global pandemic? Can we apply Positive Community Norms to messaging about COVID19? How can we continue messaging about anything else?  

This team-led series of five virtual workshops will address these questions and show how the Science of the Positive can be a touchstone and a guide for public health practitioners during difficult and confusing times. No previous experience is necessary, but we recommend that newcomers also register for the Introduction to Positive Community Norms. 

We are often called upon to message during difficult times, such as in the aftermath of a drug-related student death or a natural disaster. How can the principles of the Science of the Positive and Positive Community norms help us now? How can we effectively engage with positivity and hope in our work and messaging?
