These days, we’ve become so attached to our digital gadgets, websites, and apps that it’s easy to lose sight of a fundamental question: aside from the immediate rewards they provide, are they really making us happier? Many studies have illustrated the potential toxic effects of technology on our happiness.

But with some minor tweaks, we can change our relationship with technology to foster greater health and well-being. This workshop will draw from positive psychology, cutting-edge neuroscience, and recent research on the power of technology.
