A1268: The Science of Happiness in Cascade! Winter 2014 (Jan. 28, 2014)
Fuzzy slippers, friendship, cookies, money. We've heard it all. Humans have been obsessed with finding the secret to happiness for ages. And today, with the growing popularity of positive psychology--a field of psychology that focuses on human happiness--the number of these happiness theories has exponentially increased. But if we have discovered so many more "scientifically proven" ways for us to increase our happiness, then why aren't we any happier than before? In this class, we are going to explore the validity of these theories. We will start briefly with the ideas of the ancient world and then move on to new research from current prominent psychologists. Hopefully, you will leave the class with an understanding of what makes us truly happy, as well as some easy ways to become happier in your life.
