Historically, the field of psychology has placed great attention on the questions "what is wrong with people and how do we fix it?" This class will focus on "what is right with people and how can we build on that?"


We will explore this by dispelling common myths about the nature of happiness and its pursuit, and delving into empirically-supported strategies for increasing well-being such as mindset, gratitude, resilience, prosocial behavior, the mind-body connection, and physical activity. Time and flexibility are built in to explore additional topics based on the attendees' interests.

Class size is limited to 45.
