Many people are unhappy. They think they know what will make them happy. They are wrong. This course explores the science behind happiness. It identifies fallacies about happiness, what actually makes people happy, and how substance abuse counselors can integrate the intentional pursuit of happiness into their practice as a front-line treatment to reduce depression.
