The times, they are a changin’ — big time!

Enough boredom and inauthenticity! Enough bullying! It’s time for a new look at our lives — no matter the age or setting.

I am excited to announce that beginning Nov. 6, Middle School students and faculty from a local public school will learn about Happiness Research, Character Strengths and Positive Psychology in a two year research project (and beyond). I’ll be coordinating the effort that joins the school district and a team of prominent researchers from the field of Positive Psychology and education. I am thrilled with the willingness of the faculty and administration to dive into such a progressive endeavor –especially in the midst of so many other external changes they face.

Stay tuned for updates!
