Community Hour with Professor Catherine Sanderson

The Science of Happiness

April 12, 2013 - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm (already occurred)
Stirn Auditorium, Mead Art Museum

Join us and hear what everyone is talking about! There has long been a buzz about Catherine Sanderson's views on happiness. Here is your chance to get the info first hand. Students, faculty and staff are invited to the second Community Hour on Friday, April 12 at 11 a.m. in Stirn Auditorium.

This talk presents both surprising and not-so-surprising information on the science behind happiness. What role do money, IQ, marriage, friends, children, weather, and religion play in making us feel happier? Is happiness stable over time? How can happiness be increased? Professor Catherine Sanderson will describe cutting-edge research from the field of positive psychology on the factors that do (and do not) predict happiness, and provide participants with practical (and relatively easy!) ways to increase their own psychological well-being.
