Husband-and-wife team Suzie Pileggi Pawelski and James Pawelski, Ph.D. join us to talk about their work in the field of positive psychology. We’ll hear about their research, writing, and workshops, and ask about strategies for cultivating well-being in our own lives. James and Suzie are parents and GHF members, so they have an inside perspective on the joys and challenges of navigating a non-traditional educational path. We’ll discover their top pieces of advice for nurturing family relationships and finding happiness in unexpected places.
