Catherine A. Sanderson EventThe Vermont Humanities Council, the Manchester Community Library, and Northshire Bookstore are proud to present Catherine A Sanderson delivering a lecture entitled "There Is Nothing Either Good or Bad, But Thinking Makes It So" as part of Vermont Humanities' First Wednesdays Series at the First Congregational Church of Manchester.

 Is this famous quotation from Hamlet that serves as the title to her lecture true? Catherine A. Sanderson, Amherst College professor and author of The Positive Shift, outlines the significant difference we can make in our daily lives simply by adjusting our outlook.

Catherine A. Sanderson is the Manwell Family Professor in Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a specialization in Health and Development, from Stanford University, and received both masters and doctoral degrees in psychology from Princeton University. Professor Sanderson’s research examines how personality and social variables influence health-related behaviors such as safer sex and disordered eating, the development of persuasive messages and interventions to prevent unhealthy behavior, and the predictors of relationship satisfaction. This research has received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health.

Professor Sanderson has published more than 25 journal articles and book chapters in addition to five college textbooks, a high school health textbook, and a popular press book on parenting. In 2012, she was named one of the country’s top 300 professors by the Princeton Review. Professor Sanderson speaks regularly to public and corporate audiences on such topics as the science of happiness, emotional intelligence, the mind-body connection, and the psychology of good and evil.

Northshire Bookstore will be on hand selling copies of Catherine's new book The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset to Improve Happiness, Health, and Longevity.
