Advanced Happiness

This in depth talk presents both surprising and not-so-surprising information on the science behind happiness. Is happiness stable over time? How can happiness be increased? What role do money, marriage, friends, children, weather, age, and religion play in making us feel happier? 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.
