Positive Psychology Micro Lab

SOMO Micro Lab - SOcial-eMOtional Intelligence + Leadership

Successful people think differently. They have the ability to bounce back, persevere, and make things happen even in the face of adversity. In this innovative learning laboratory, we'll be exposed to the burgeoning research in Positive Psychology, the science of success and happiness. We will discover how we’re genetically predisposed to negativity, and how switching this habit of thinking to something more positive takes intention, attention and effort. Come learn some scientifically informed strategies for how to build psychosocial muscle and in turn, get SO'MO of what you want in life (at home, work, and every place in between).

Bucks County: Dinner Lecture by Professor Paul H. Robinson
Please join the Penn Club of Bucks County for the first in our dinner lecture series as we welcome Professor Paul H. Robinson, the Colin S. Diver Professor of Law at Penn Law and one of the world's leading criminal law scholars. Professor Robinson has published articles in virtually all of the top law reviews, lectured in 95 cities in 32 states and 25 countries, and had his writings appear in 13 languages. A formal federal prosecutor and counsel for the US Senate Subcommittee on Criminal Laws and Procedures, Professor Robinson is the author or editor of 14 books, including his forthcoming Pirates, Prisoners and Lepers: Lessons from Life Outside the Law.

Professor Robinson has prepared a lecture especially for the Penn Club of Bucks County, based on this forthcoming publication, which explores a variety of natural experiments over the course of human history (Pirates of the 1700s; the leper colony of Molokai Island; hippie communes of the 1970s; shipwreck and plane crash survivors, etc...) to determine how societies function in the absence of formal rules, punishments and hierarchies to suggest that humans are predisposed to be cooperative within limits. Should today's criminal justice system build on people's shared intuition about justice or are we better off acknowledging the darker sides of human nature and using law to temper it?

Key event details are below:

When: Wednesday, May 6, 2015 from 6:30pm-9pm (Dinner will be available at 6:30pm. The one-hour lecture will begin at 7pm)

Where: The Hattery Stove & Still (Doylestown, PA)

Pricing: $27 members/$32 non-members

Additional Information: Dinner will be provided (please email pennbucksalumni@gmail.com if you have any dietary restrictions). Copies of Professor Robinson's book will be available for pre-order with a special discount at the event.

Please RSVP through EventBrite by May 1, 2015 so that we may have an accurate headcount for the event.
