Optimism

Module Overview

Originated Prof. Felicia Megret

Optimism is a mental attitude – a happy belief that the outcome of some specific endeavour, or outcomes in general, will be good. The term derives from the Latin optimum, meaning “best”. Being optimistic, in the typical sense of the word, is defined as expecting the best possible outcome from any given situation. This is usually referred to in psychology as dispositional optimism. It reflects a belief that future conditions will work out for the best.
In this module we look at how optimism is also influenced by environmental factors, including family environment. With some suggesting it can be learned, we look at how Optimism may also be linked to health and wellbeing.

We will explore

  • What is optimism?
  • Why optimism is good for your health
  • Learning to be optimistic
  • What makes you feel optimistic?
  • Helping your friends to be optimistic

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
