Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, speaks about her book “Exuberance, The Passion for Life” at a conference on teacher wellness organized by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY). Introduced by CTY’s Dr. Charles Rowins. Topics include: mental health, genius, creativity, moods and mood disorders, depression, bi-polar disorder, teaching gifted and talented children, genetics, risk-taking and the joy of teaching.
