In the Spotlight: “Happiness: What It is and How We Grow It”

Sunday, Nov 20 | 10:45 AM
Daniels Hall

Presenter: Philip Chard

In our culture, the “pursuit of happiness” has largely gone awry. Research shows many of us seek life satisfaction in all the wrong places, and that we often fail to embrace the core attitudes and behaviors that make our lives more fulfilling. We will explore how our culture distorts the keys to life satisfaction, the psychological and spiritual underpinnings of happiness, and some of the surprising ways it can be achieved.

Philip Chard, after 32 years as president and CEO, recently retired from Empathia Inc., a behavioral services firm. He remains a practicing psychotherapist who writes the award-winning weekly “Out of My Mind” column in the (then) Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, (now) Shepherd Express.
