SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, is set to air an impactful show, "The Science of Happiness," on Sunday, Jan. 22, at 5 p.m. Pacific time on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. The broadcast will explore how the idea of happiness has changed, what makes people happy, what the neural correlates of happiness are and whether happiness is an illusion. The show is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's panelists include Veena Kumari, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Sovereign Health, who oversees the scientific initiatives of Sovereign Health, including the development of new processes, technologies and products; and Laura A. King, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Missouri, and one of the world's leading experts on the study of the meaning of life.
"As psychologists, we generally define happiness in terms of three aspects of people's lives: their positive emotions, their balance against negative emotion and then there's a cognitive component, which is a judgment that a person makes about how satisfied they are in their life," says Dr. King when asked what it means to be happy and whether happiness is a choice. "To some extent, happiness is a choice."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
