The Neuroscience of Raising Happy Kids

UPDATE: This event is now sold out. We'll post notes from the event to share with those who couldn't attend, and please feel free to join us for a later Speaker Series event!

Millennium School, a new independent middle school in San Francisco, and San Francisco Friends School, an independent K-8 school, are thrilled to host a special event featuring Dr. Dacher Keltner. Dr. Keltner's groundbreaking neuroscience work has applied the tools of modern science to understand well-being - what makes for happy, purposeful young people and adults? Dacher founded the Greater Good Science Center at UC-Berkeley, one of the leading institutes applying this research for parents and educators, and has written several books on the topic, including Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life, and the forthcoming The Power Paradox: How We Gain and Lose Influence. He also collaborated with Pixar on the film Inside Out, one of the most compelling presentations of neuroscience as it applies to adolescents.

Dr. Keltner's talk will be geared toward parents with kids approaching or in middle school, as well as educators serving students of this age. There will be a book-signing for The Power Paradox following the main event.
