In keeping with one of the Sacramento ASTD training themes for 2012,


The rapidly developing world of cognitive brain science and how it affects training and trainer/developers…


The new 2012 Program Committee is kicking off the year with a real mind expanding presentation by one of the pre-eminent researchers in brain science  ---
Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D.

of the University of California, Davis

Dr. Emmons is the Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Positive Psychology and Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Davis, where he has taught since 1988. He is the author of over 100 original publications in peer reviewed journals or chapters and has written or edited five books, including The Psychology of Ultimate Concerns (Guilford Press), The Psychology of Gratitude (Oxford University Press), and THANKS! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier (Houghton-Mifflin). 

According to Dr. Emmons recent research, "Grateful people experience higher levels of positive emotions such as joy, enthusiasm, love, happiness, and optimism. The practice of gratitude as a discipline protects a person from the destructive impulses of envy, resentment, greed, and bitterness." Come learn how Dr. Emmons research can impact you so that you can pass along some of the latest tools and techniques to become a more effective trainer and person!
