Finding happiness cover
Event Date: May 14, 2013 - 1 p.m.
Location: Campus Center 3545

Vice Chancellor Patrick K. Day invites you to a workshop with author Dr. Todd Patkin.

What does a happy life look like? His book, Finding Happiness: One Man's Quest to Beat Depression and Anxiety and Finally Let the Sunshine In, Dr. Patkin explores the painful emotions that often lie just beneath the surface of a perfect life. From a childhood riddled with insecurity and perfectionism to an adulthood marked by the exhaustive need to always excel and achieve more to a devastating breakdown at the age of thirty-six, Patkin chronicles his own very difficult but ultimately successful journey toward cracking the happiness code.
