Event description

Description

“A smart and engaging exploration of the science of happiness and how we can use it on our own lives.”
—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness and professor of psychology at Harvard University

It’s the reason why spending time on Facebook makes us feel sad and lonely. Why expensive name-brand medicines provide better pain relief than the generic stuff, even if they share the same ingredients. And why a hospital room with a good view speeds up recovery from surgery.

In The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset for Happiness, Health, and Longevity, Dr. Catherine Sanderson breaks down the science of thought and shows how our mindset or thought pattern exerts a substantial influence on our psychological and physical health.

JOIN US on Thursday, May 16th, at 7:30 PM for a CPS Lecture with Catherine Sanderson, she will discuss The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset for Happiness, Health, and Longevity.

About Catherine:

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, CNN, and CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley.

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.

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.
