I will be teaching 10 outstanding high school students this week that were selected for my program as part of the Daniel Fox Youth Scholars Institute at Lebanon Valley College.
My program is called "Life's Big Questions: The Psychology of the Self." This will be my third year teaching this program. It focuses on issues of identity (how do other's form impressions about you?, how do you form impressions about you?, and how do you convey your self-image to others?), meaning (good & evil, cults, self-esteem), and happiness (who's happy?, how can I be happy?, and why don't people know what makes them happy?).
