You’ve read the blog posts and seen the TikToks and YouTube videos: time and again, people recommend happiness. It can be hard to parse apart how much of this advice is based on scientific evidence and how much is toxic positivity.
In this 30-minute Lunch & Learn series, well-being researcher and U-Thrive Educational Services Key Contributor Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener will help demystify the topic of happiness. He will discuss the many benefits of well-being and will focus, especially, on research on college student social life and academic performance. He will also offer a candid view of where people overpromise the benefits of happiness. Come explore the science of Positive Psychology with us.
