What if we stopped trying to feel happier and tried feeling WORSE instead? This presentation uncovers widely-held cultural beliefs and habits that promote misery. With tongue partly in cheek, psychologist and author Dr. Randy Paterson points out the signposts to despair which, if disobeyed, might lead to a sunnier destination.
Dr. Randy J. Paterson is an alumnus of Western's Clinical Psychology Program. A psychologist and author, Paterson is the founder of Changeways Clinic in Vancouver, provides talks and training programs to professionals and the public across Canada and internationally. His work (How to be Miserable, The Assertiveness Workbook, and others), focuses on the treatment of depression and anxiety.
