Coping with COVID

In 2020, Positive Voices, Inc. reached out to the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) to showcase our organization and to highlight the work of many leaders from across the world of Positive Psychology, in a new interview series called “Coping with COVID” which was hosted by the legendary Larry King (prior to his untimely passing) and IPPA’s founding Executive Director James O. Pawelski, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

These hosts interviewed leading experts in Positive Psychology and wellbeing to ask for answers to the questions that we all needed to know, then (and now). The Coping with COVID Series featured guests, including: Drs. Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ken Pargament, Jane Dutton, John Ratey, Lea Waters, Judy Moskowitz, and Robert Vallerand. All of these recordings are available for you below. If you have any problem accessing the videos below, contact us.
