Dr. Samantha Boardman, Positive Psychiatrist and Creator of Positive Prescription

Dr. Samantha Boardman is a Positive Psychiatrist with a private practice in Manhattan. She is a Clinical Instructor in Psychiatry and Assistant Attending Psychiatrist at Weill Cornell Medical College. After a patient told Dr. Boardman that every session only made her feel worse, Samantha realized, “She was right. I knew how to dial down her misery, but I knew nothing about how to build up her strengths and cultivate wellbeing.” In response to this, Samantha went back to school and received her Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and has been practicing Positive Psychiatry ever since. Dr. Boardman created a website and e-newsletter, Positive Prescription, sharing insights from the psychiatry and psychology community with readers, and exploring the way psychology, culture and science intersect. Through Boardman’s website, she shares scientifically backed observations that are life-enhancing and resilience-building. Listen in as Dr. Devgan chats with Dr. Boardman on positivity and beauty!
