Each day I strive for happiness, and I have been wondering how perception plays into the equation. Some of my clients can hardly verbalize their thoughts, but can keep a smile on their faces. They must be perceiving their situation differently than others. What makes us happy? I think it is how we perceive our own situations. Dan Gilbert, a Harvard psychologist shares an interesting study on the science of happiness. I am curious how the study would play out with people with special needs.
