The Educational Psychology program at Cal State East Bay will partner with the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley to sponsor a day-long seminar titled,  “Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Lasting Inner Strength and Peace,"  on Saturday, Nov. 16 with best-selling author Rick Hanson.

"Dr. Hanson will offer concrete, research-based strategies for using everyday positive experiences to develop lasting inner strength," said Rolla Lewis, professor of educational psychology and school counseling coordinator at Cal State East Bay. "He will explore methods to lower anxiety and stress, which will be helpful to graduate students in school counseling, school psychology, and those they are helping. This is the first year that CSUEB's Educational Psychology Department (School Psychology and School Counseling Programs) will be collaborating with UC Berkeley. We are looking forwarding to this partnership and wonderful training for our students."

This one-time event will be held at the International House on the UC Berkeley campus on Nov. 16 from 9am to 4:30pm. The cost is $149 per person with discounts for students and groups.
