Keys to Living a Happy and Healthy Life

September 9

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn lessons from the longest study on adult development and what it means for us.

What brings us happiness and keeps us healthy as we go through life? Many people think money and fame are the answer to a meaningful life–but is it? Dr. Waldinger directs the Harvard Study of Adult Development, which is possibly the longest study of adult life ever done (see www.lifespanresearch.org).┬áIn this live, one-hour workshop, he will share the insights gained across this study, what it can teach us about managing relationships in times of crisis, and offer practical applications you can use in your own life.

Dr. Waldinger received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College and his MD from Harvard Medical School. He is the author of numerous scientific papers as well as two books: Psychiatry for Medical Students, and Effective Psychotherapy with Borderline Patients: Case Studies. He is a practicing psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, teaches Harvard medical students and psychiatry residents, and is on the faculty of the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute. He also practices and teaches Zen meditation. In 2016, Dr. Waldinger co-founded the Lifespan Research Foundation (LRF) as Executive Director, to dramatically increase the distribution of the study findings to millions of people. The mission of LRF is “to promote and use lifespan research to enable people to live healthier lives, filled with meaning and purpose.”

This live presentation will take place via Zoom. A link and instructions will be sent to all who RSVP. One RSVP per household, unless more than one computer will be used. There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation. Please call 603-658-1586 with any questions.
