This project was born out of the idea that work should be a meaningful, life-enriching experience for everyone. We study well-being at work among the wonderful people in the caring professions, focusing our current work on clergy and their families. We set out to find what makes pastors and priests tick -- and what ticks them off -- in an attempt to bring joy to the people who work so hard to bring it to others. Visit the project website here.
This research was born out of the conviction that work should be a meaningful, life-enriching experience for everyone. We are pursuing a rigorous program of scientific research that is designed to explore what makes work a positive, happy, enlivening experience versus what makes work a negative, discouraging, life-depleting experience. We will explore that conditions that foster or impede these positive work experiences, and we will offer insights into how our research might be put into practice. We also hope to build a community of people who are interested in learning more about well-being at work, so we invite you to join our ongoing journey of discovery. Visit the project website here.
This project explores well-being among those wonderful people in the caring professions -- those people who work for humanitarian organizations, NGOs, charities, philanthropies and other groups that are dedicated to improving life in all its forms, especially those who serve people suffering from poverty, injustice, and oppression.

This project concentrates on how our experiences of work change over our lifespan. We want to understand how people find work that is a life calling, how to harmonize life inside and outside of work, and how to transform dull, discouraging work into vital, life-given work.
