Resilience & Wellness: Joy Multiplier

The skill of joy multiplier teaches individuals to be authentically engaged when having conversations about another person’s positive experiences. Through authentic engagement, both individuals feel greater trust and belonging, and the relationship is strengthened.
Learning Objective: 

  • Participants will learn four ways in which individuals respond to other people’s positive experiences, and that only the joy multiplier style strengthens the relationship. 
  • Participants will explore barriers to being a joy multiplier. 
  • Participants will identify their own response style patterns and will practice the joy multiplier style. 

This workshop will be facilitated by Meg Dobson, MD, Assistant Professor of Family Medicine.

This workshop is part of a series of resilience workshops. Others include:

Resilience & Wellness: Awe and Gratitude
