Why is helping our patients more challenging in today’s tumultuous times?
How does depression fit into the happiness puzzle?
The Happiness Puzzle Conference is a multidisciplinary exploration of happiness, viewed through the lens of scientific research, psychoanalysis, poetry, the arts, and entrepreneurship. The morning program features presentations by three distinguished guest presenters, happiness expert Sonja Lyubomirsky, PhD, U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith, MFA, and renowned psychoanalyst Glen Gabbard, MD,
who share their expertise and experiences illuminating aspects of the puzzle and examine why the goal of happiness is so important for life fulfillment, creating deep and lasting relationships, and living creatively.
During the afternoon session, several new voices from additional disciplines will join the morning presenters for a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Gabbard, to share their narratives as we deepen our understanding of the relationship between happiness, resiliency, depression, gratitude, and creativity. Presenters include screenwriter Larry Stuckey and mental health activist Alix Schwartz, MSW.
We expect this conference to inspire conversations that continue in our clinical settings, work sites, schools, personal relationships, and into the community at large. We welcome those new to NCP programming, and are pleased to offer the discounted price of $75.
