Dr. Tim Bono
Dr. Tim Bono is a faculty member in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis where his teaching and research focus on positive psychology and college student development. His work has been featured in a number of national media outlets including NBC News, CNN, Fast Company and the Associated Press. Over the last decade, thousands of students have taken his popular courses on the Psychology of Young Adulthood and the Science of Happiness. He summarizes the research from those courses, along with how his students have put that information into practice in their own lives, in his recent book, Happiness 101: Simple Secrets to Smart Living & Well-Being.
The Science of Happiness
What makes people happy and how can we increase happiness in our lives? Gain insight into the good life and strategies for life satisfaction based on research in Positive Psychology, featuring some of Dr. Tim Bono’s favorite studies from his WashU course on the Science of Happiness. We’ll dispel some of the myths around the nature of happiness and its pursuit, and delve into the behaviors and mindsets that contribute to sustainable happiness in our day-to-day lives.
Our emotions can lead us on a roller coaster of feeling good, feeling anxious, feeling indifferent—and everything in between. Learn research-based strategies for harnessing the potential of the good and minimizing the impact of the negative. Bringing such emotional intelligence to our daily lives can strengthen both the quality of our work as well as the quality of relationships with others.
