Featured Session: The Science of Happiness

This talk presents 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? 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.

Catherine A. Sanderson
is the Manwell Family Professor of Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College.  She received a bachelor's degree in psychology, with a specialization in Health and Development, from Stanford University, and received both masters and doctoral degrees in psychology from Princeton University.  Her research has received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health. Professor Sanderson has published over 25 journal articles and book chapters in addition to four college textbooks, middle school and high school health textbooks, and a trade book on parenting. Her latest trade book, The Positive Shift, examines how our thoughts influence happiness, health, and longevity. In 2012, she was named one of the country's top 300 professors by the Princeton Review.  Professor Sanderson speaks regularly for public and corporate audiences on topics such as the science of happiness, the power of emotional intelligence, the mind-body connection, and the psychology of good and evil. These talks have been featured in numerous mainstream media outlets, including The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, and CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley. She is currently working on a book (coming in 2020 from Harvard University Press) on why good people so often stay silent or do nothing in the face of wrongdoing. Catherine lives with her husband, Bart Hollander, and three children - Andrew, Robert, and Caroline - in Hadley, Massachusetts.
