We’re sharing the best moments from #revitalize2016, our premier event bringing together wellness leaders and inspiring people. Want to get even more of the action?  Check out the full talks here.  

Dr. Samantha Boardman explains how, in medical school, clinical psychiatrists are taught how to bring patients back to their baselines. On the other end of the spectrum, positive psychology encourages therapists and psychiatrists to empower patients to push beyond the baseline in order to realize their potential. Learn more about the paradigm shift that changed her career and her definition of happiness in this short interview with founder and CEO of mindbodygreen, Jason Wachob.

Dr. Boardman's practice changed forever after a former patient shared that their sessions made her feel worse, not better. It was in that moment that Dr. Boardman was inspired to get her master's (in addition to her M.D.) in positive psychology, which is what she's been practicing ever since. Her protocol, Positive Prescription, focuses on building resilience and life-enhancing change.
