Virtual Lunch Together with Sonja Lyubomirsky

Learning about The How of Happiness with best-selling author Sonja Lyubomirsky
Live Broadcast Date: Tuesday, July 14, 2020
Live Broadcast Time: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, ET

Sonja Lyubomirsky is author of the best-selling The How of Happiness: A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You Want  and The Myths of Happiness: What Should Make You Happy, But Doesnt, What Shouldnt Make You Happy, But Does.  Sonja’s research has focused on developing a science of human happiness and addressing these 3 critical questions:

  1. What makes people happy?
  2. Is happiness a good thing?
  3. How can we make people happier still?


Join Sonia and Leading Edge founder Michael Kerman as they discuss how she came to focus on the theme of happiness and how therapists can benefit from her lifelong passion. And maybe we will get a little more insight into what can help our clients lead more satisfying lives.
