Dr. Charles Walker, professor of psychology, and 2014 computer science graduate Brandon Kowalski presented the results of their latest research on the unobtrusive observation of eudaimonic and hedonic happiness at the Canadian Positive Psychology Conference held recently in Ottawa.
They shared the results of three studies then showed attendees how to use their website to assess the happiness manifested in groups, organizations and communities. To have a peek and give their system a test run, please go to http://www.happyobservation.org.
Walker also gave a talk last summer on the "Art of Teaching Positively" at the Incredible Children's Art Network in Santa Barbara, Calif. (http://icansbc.org/), and more recently he facilitated a discussion on "What Science Can Tell Us About Happiness" at the Olean Meditation Center.
