Invited Speaker: Dr. Jaime Kurtz on the Psychology of Happiness and Savoring College Life

Savoring College Life: An Application of Research in Positive Psychology


What makes you happy? How can you more fully appreciate your everyday life? Dr. Jaime Kurtz of James Madison University will present research from the field of positive psychology; specifically, to what extent can you become a happier person? And what techniques should you use if you want to be happier? She will also present some of her own research findings. She has recently studied the effects of mindful photography on appreciation of your surroundings, the effects of sharing your favorite places with a newcomer, and the benefits of living this month like it is your last.
