Julia Boehm, PhD
, will present “The Heart’s Content: Positive Psychological Well-Being and Cardiovascular Health”. Associations between psychological health and physical health have long been recognized. However, most research to date has investigated the association between poor psychological functioning (e.g., depression, anxiety, and hostility) and physical health. The talk will address how positive psychological well-being (e.g., optimism, purpose in life, and happiness) may also be related to health independently of the effects of psychological ill-being.
