CWiPP Keynote Lecture by Paul Dolan

Who: Prof Paul Dolan, Professor of Behavioural Science, London School of Economics
When: Wed 24 May 2017, 1730-1830
Where: Lecture Theatre 4, The Diamond, University of Sheffield
What: “The narrative trap”

Paul says: "In my follow up to Happiness by Design, I will explore some of the main social stories we are told about how we ought to live our lives. I will seek to show that these narratives actually cause more harm than good to our happiness. This talk is very much work in progress. I will benefit from getting your comments, and I hope you will learn something too."

Why: Paul wrote the questions that are currently being used by the Office for National Statistics to monitor national wellbeing and is also responsible for producing the MINDSPACE report for the UK Cabinet Office, which he uses widely in consulting with public sector and corporate clients. Much of his work has been inspired by his time working alongside Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman at Princeton University and Mark Deverill at the University of Sheffield.
