Recent Presentation Handout sets
Ah, the joy of sets. Sets of handouts, I mean.
Often when I'm doing workshops, especially fairly intensive workshops, I put together a set of related handouts, PowerPoints, and other tools the audience might want to down load.
This page is a collection of some of those.

New: Your brain on happiness: a chemical story
I recently did a new presentation at JALTSendai and the 2018 PanSIG conference in Tokoyo. It was on on what is happening chemically in the brain when we are happy. It is a combination of my interest in brain science and in positive psychology. It comes at the topic more from a neuro-biology point of view than from cognitive psychology. HERE is a link the the JALTSendai site where you can download the PowerPoint.
