In the past five years, science has made great strides in better understanding the emotion of awe. UC Berkeley psychologist Craig L. Anderson will help us understand state-of-the-art findings about how awe promotes curiosity and pro-sociality, including the physiological processes that support these behaviors. We will explore important implications that awe research has for well-being interventions, the health of military veterans, and making outdoors programs more accessible.
