Thursday, 4th June at 20:00 Zurich, 19:00 London, 14:00 New York
Join Catherine Sanderson, the Manwell Family Professor of Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College , as she examines what is the science about happiness and what role do money, friends, children, weather, age and religion play in making us feel better.
This talk presents both surprising and not-so-surprising information on the science behind happiness. What role do money, marriage, friends, children, weather, age, and religion play in making us feel happier? Is happiness stable over time? How can happiness be increased? Dr. Catherine Sanderson will describe cutting-edge research from the field of positive psychology on the factors that do (and do not) predict happiness, and provide participants with practical (and relatively easy!) ways to increase their own psychological well-being.
About Catherine Sanderson
Catherine Sanderson received a bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a specialisation in Health and Development, from Stanford University, and received both masters and doctoral degrees in psychology from Princeton University.
Her research has received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health. Professor Sanderson has published over 25 journal articles and book chapters in addition to four college textbooks, middle school and high school health textbooks, and trade books on parenting as well as how mindset influences happiness, health, and even how long we live (The Positive Shift). In 2012, she was named one of the country's top 300 professors by the Princeton Review.
Professor Sanderson speaks regularly for public and corporate audiences on topics such as the science of happiness, the power of emotional intelligence, the art of ageing well, and the psychology of courage and inaction. These talks have been featured in numerous mainstream media outlets, including The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, CNN, and CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley. She also writes a weekly blog for Psychology Today - Norms Matter - that examines the power of social influence on virtually all aspects of our lives.
Her latest trade book, published in North America as Why We Act: Turning Bystanders Into Moral Rebels (Harvard University Press) and internationally as The Bystander Effect: The Psychology of Courage and Inaction (HarperCollins), examines why good people so often stay silent or do nothing in the face of wrongdoing. For a preview of the topics addressed in this book, watch Catherine’s TEDx talk on the Psychology of Inaction, which describes the factors that contribute to inaction and provides strategies we all can use to help people act, even when those around them are not.

Building resilience with speaker DR PATAPIA TZOTZOLI
Tuesday, 26 May at 19:00 CET (19:00 Zurich, 18:00 London, 13:00 New York)
Join Dr Patapia Tzotzoli, for an interactive webinar to explore resilience and emotional well-being.
It’s inevitable that we’ll all be affected somehow during the coronavirus crisis, either by getting infected or by experiencing disruptions and facing unprecedented challenges in our daily lives. The situation we find ourselves in offers us a unique opportunity to learn some new skills. Adversity helps us build resilience so we can better cope with life’s inevitable difficulties – which is an invaluable attribute to nurture.
We can begin to do our part by tuning in our mindset and consciously committing to do what it takes, however uncomfortable that may be. We must accept the challenge to learn and avoid shirking the responsibility, running away, or turning a blind eye. We can achieve this by taking control of our mind, body, and emotions, and by believing in our abilities to see this through. In the end, our efforts will benefit ourselves, as well as our whole community.
About Dr Patapia Tzotzoli
Dr Patapia Tzotzoli founded My Psychology Clinic where she gained her reputation working as a clinical psychologist with clients on a one-to-one basis in London, and worldwide via online therapy. She specialises in adult mental health and couples therapy. After studying at the University of East London, Oxford, and Cambridge, she trained at the Institute of Psychiatry where she worked across world-renowned NHS Trusts. Dr Tzotzoli is also the CEO and founder of iConcipio Ltd, a digital mental health company that aims to enhance students' resilience and improve their experience in higher education institutions by supporting their mental health, wellbeing, and study skills.
On both a personal and professional level, Dr Tzotzoli has been advocating that we embrace adversity. Our past influences how we think and feel as we face everyday challenges and life’s distressing events and transitions. But by choosing to learn from adversity, we can reclaim the freedom and power to behave as we wish today. Adapting well in the face of adversity is known as resilience; an invaluable attribute to nurture as it empowers us to grow and helps us efficiently navigate a more rewarding life. Dr Tzotzoli strives to study, practice, and build resilience daily. This is how she mindfully endeavour to take care of her mental health. For her, it's a lifetime goal and she finds meaning in helping others make progress on their path to resilience and mental health.

A Credentialed Practitioner Of Life Coaching and Certified Meta Dynamics Practitioner (an integration of NLP, positive psychology and other modalities)—Danielle uses a blend of tools and techniques from years of her own self-discovery, integrating both strategy and heart-led work.
