Abstract:

Can happiness be taught? Modern science has done much to improve the human lot but has cast little light on how to achieve happiness. QED, with help from several experts in psychology, has developed a "course in happiness," which is designed to change deep-seated beliefs and attitudes and make it possible to find more joy in life. This program observes three volunteers, each with very different backgrounds and lifestyles, as they took QED's three-week course of instruction under the careful guidance of a psychologist. Will they feel any happier? The program provides the answer to this question as the three volunteers prepare to get on with their lives.
