The Positive Psychology of Family Philanthropy

Can money make your family happier? Yes, if you give it away. That’s according to Joel Treisman, a scholar-practitioner in the fields of positive psychology and the psychology of wealth. We recently hosted a webinar with Joel to look at the relationship between money and happiness—and how giving can help families flourish.

A growing body of research has illuminated the mechanisms through which generosity, altruism, and caring for others promotes well-being in families. Watch our webinar replay to learn about the connections between philanthropy and family flourishing.
