Info

Chester Village West, an independent senior living community, continues its Lifelong Learning Program with six free-and-open-to-the-public lectures in September, October and November. The program is in partnership with the Wesleyan Institute for Lifelong Learning and Middlesex Hospital. A Q&A and reception with light refreshments will be held after each program. 

Wesleyan University Professor of Psychology Emeritus Karl Scheibe will present "Some Paradoxes of Wellbeing".  Wellbeing has recently moved to center state of psychologists' field of attention. This is in part a reaction to the traditional focus of psychology on problems of human suffering. But research on this topic has turned up some fascinating contradictions. Pleasure and pain do not accumulate in the same way, revealing a curious asymmetry in our emotional lives. Paradoxes of well-being are conspicuous, not the least of which is the observation that older people manifest an unexpected level of satisfaction with their lives.
