Rick Hanson Keynote Speaker

Rick Hanson

Neuropsychologist, Author
Rick Hanson's speaking engagements utilize his neuropsychology background to discuss personal well-being and psychological growth. Hanson graduated summa cum laude from UCLA in 1974 and received his Master's in developmental psychology from San Francisco State; he went on to achieve a PhD from Wright Institute in clinical psychology.

Hanson formerly served on the board of FamilyWorks and currently acts as the Saybrook University trustee. Hanson also runs his own clinical practice, treating individuals, couples, families and youth. He founded the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom and also serves on the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.

After the birth of his children, Hanson collaborated with his wife in authoring 'Mother Nurture: A Mother’s Guide to Health in Body, Mind, and Intimate Relationships,' which explored the health and well-being of mothers. He's also written 'Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom,' a book that applies neuropsychology methods to alleviate stress and to increase peacefulness. He followed that up with 'Just One Thing: Developing a Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time.' Other works have been featured in publications such as Therapy Network, New Beginnings and the Insight Journal. He also runs a blog titled 'Your Wise Brain' and offers a newsletter 'Just One Thing' to promote greater happiness.
