Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, Exuberance, The Passion for Life

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. As Dr. Jamison writes in "Exuberance": "To teach well, I heard early and often, is to make a difference. To teach unusually well is to create magic."
