The Vista Hill Council on Mental Health hosted a luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Aventine, La Jolla on Aug. 4 with guest speaker Arlene Matthews Uhl of New Jersey discussing “The Pursuit of Happiness: A New Psychology.”

Uhl is a psychotherapist, professor of developmental psychology, and the author of numerous self-help books, including “Seven Keys to Calm,” and Idiot’s Guides to “Coping with Difficult People,” “Beating Stress,” and “The Psychology of Happiness.”

Uhl encouraged guests to think about the good things in their lives when they have a down moment. What are you thankful for? What do you enjoy?

“Take time,” she advised, “to enjoy time for yourself, but think of others as well. What can you do to make the world a better place? Consider supporting causes, like the Vista Hill Foundation’s work, which ranges from working with troubled young people, to treatment for school-age kids and providing long-term special education and training for individuals with developmental disabilities as well as family support.
