Featured Sessions

The Science of Happiness
Speaker: Catherine Sanderson, Manwell Family Professor of Life Sciences (Psychology), Amherst College
Sponsored by Marriott

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 at home and in the workplace.
