Possessing and sustaining a feeling of hope has emerged as one of the top factors in individuals having a prolonged sense of well-being over the course of their lifetimes. This webinar will present the science of hope as a psychological strength in our ability to cope with traumatic experiences and to flourish toward future goals. This webinar will feature a discussion with Dr. Chan Hellman of The University of Oklahoma–Tulsa about his research that shows (1) how hope can predict adaptive outcomes, (2) how it can buffer the effects of trauma, adversity, and stress, and (3) that hope can be taught. Dr. Hellman will discuss his research in the context of Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) and how CACs can increase hope within their organizations to create more resilient professionals.
