Invited to the NY Hall of Science to talk about happiness through dance and science
In December 2022, I was invited by the New York Hall of Science to talk about the Science of happiness. The event is for teens where they will explore the "happiness experiment" at the museum and have the opportunity to "skate into happiness" on our new synthetic indoor ice rink.
Participants will explore movement sequences, and I will talk talk about the intersection of neuroscience, dance and emotions, encouraging them to also share and even learn from each other.
Caregiving practices change the brains of parents and other caregivers as well as the children they are supporting and play a key role in children’s future success. Scientists have discovered more about the impact that caregiving has on the brain—not only the child’s brain, but also the caregiver’s. Earlier in fall of 2022, I was honored to share some of what I’ve learned at the Parents as Teachers annual conference in Denver.
