    PPLS Webinar: "Understanding and Fostering Courage" with Dr. Cynthia Pury


    Jan 29, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    Cynthia Pury earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology specializing in anxiety. Her work in areas of cognition and fear led her to wonder about a different way of coping with threats: courage. She defines courage as the "the ability to take a worthwhile risk." In this webinar, Dr. Pury will examine the meaning of courage through empirical and philosophical conceptualizations of different types of courage and its dimensions. She will share what is known - and unknown- about its antecedents, psychological mechanisms, and frailties. This webinar will provide a better understanding of this important virtue to aid the development of applications to foster courage in individual lives, organizations, and society.
