Get Happy and Live Longer




Catherine A. Sanderson, Ph.D.

Chrysalis Institute’s spring keynote, the Art and Science of Happiness, will be presented by Catherine A. Sanderson, Ph.D., from 7 to 9 p.m. on March 16 at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Grace Street Theater. Sanderson will provide attendees with practical, easy ways to increase their own psychological well-being, including 10 specific strategies to use at home.

        Interest in the subject of happiness has recently soared; even the United Nations issues World Happiness Reports, and it has become a matter of intense study by social scientists, including Sanderson, often called the “Professor of Happiness”. With degrees from both Stanford and Princeton, she is the Manwell Professor of Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College and ranked as one of the country’s top 300 professors by the Princeton Review.

Admission is pay what you can (recommended: $25 member/$35 non-member). Location: 934 W. Grace St. To register, visit ChrysalisInstitute.org. See listing on page 27.
