Learning Circle: The Science of Well-Being

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
All Locations
Learning Circles are study groups for people who want to take a free online class and learn together. 

Engage in a series of challenges designed to increase your happiness and build more productive habits. Misconceptions about happiness are revealed, including annoying features of the mind that lead us to think the way we do and the research that can help us change. This class helps you prepare to successfully incorporate a wellness activity into your life. 

For this Learning Circle, you will need to enroll in the free, online Coursera course “The Science of Well-Being,” offered by Yale University. 

Once enrolled, you watch the course videos and do course readings at your own pace. Next, you meet in the online Learning Circle group discussion with other learners every week for four meetings to discuss what you’ve learned and any questions that have arisen. A librarian facilitates the discussion as a fellow learner. 

The course is taught by Professor Laurie Santos, Ph.D., psychologist, head of Silliman Residential College at Yale, and director of the Comparative Cognition Laboratory and the Canine Cognition Center at Yale. Dr. Santos hosts the popular podcast, The Happiness Lab

Registration is required.

Prevention Plus Wellness: Vaping

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Airway Heights
Meeting room
Did you know that e-cigarettes (a.k.a. vaping) are the most commonly used nicotine product among youth in the U.S.? Youth e-cigarette use has declined in recent years but still remains an ongoing public health concern with over 2 million youth using e-cigarettes today. 

This program is taught by local high school students, geared for youth ages 10–14, to promote healthy behaviors like physical activity, nutrition, and sleep, while also discussing the need to avoid vaping e-cigarettes to achieve positive self-identity and behavior. We work on setting goals to avoid e-cigarette consumption while increasing healthy lifestyle behaviors. This discussion of goal setting helps tweens and teens develop multiple skills for self-regulation as well as confidence in their abilities so that they can achieve greater physical and mental wellbeing. All participants will leave with swag for program completion! Ages 10–14 

Registration is required.
