The next course will be held from July 11-15, 2022, on UCL's campus in London. We plan to host the course every July. As a collaboration between the Center for Health and Happiness and the Department of Behavioural Science and Health at UCL, the course will rotate between the two institutions every year. This rotating model will allow the short course to have a more global reach and will assist in building an international community interested in and committed to building the science around linkages between emotional well-being and physical health outcomes. In addition, it will allow course organizers to maximally utilize academic and human resources from both institutions.
