One Day University brings together faculty from the country's finest schools to present special versions of their most popular lectures. One of the three speakers for this One Day University program is an Amherst College professor. Professor Catherine Sanderson will be giving a talk entitled "Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness." Professor Sanderson will present both surprising and not-so-surprising information on the science behind happiness. What role do money, marriage, friends, children, weather, age, and religion play in making us feel happier? Is happiness stable over time? How can happiness be increased? Her talk 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.
