Christine Carter, PhD, is author of The Sweet Spot: How to Achieve More by Doing Less and Raising Happiness. She is a sociologist and Senior Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, where she draws on scientific research to help people lead their most courageous, joyful, meaningful, and authentic lives.
Combining scientific research and practical application, Carter offers audiences not only a way to cope with modern pressures, but tactics to truly thrive. She looks at living life from the “sweet spot”—that place of both power and ease. She also writes an award-winning blog, Brave Over Perfect, and is a contributor to US News & World Report online. Her work is syndicated on Greater Good, the Huffington Post, PsychologyToday.com, and several other websites. Her work has earned her two nominations from the American Sociological Association for public sociology and an award from the Council on Contemporary Families.
Christine Carter has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Dr. Oz Show, The TODAY Show, The Rachael Ray Show, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC World News With Diane Sawyer, PBS, as well as NPR and BBC Radio.
