Summary: Personality, lifestyle and attitudes make substantial contributions to both the length of life and the quality of later life. According to research, psychological characteristics appear to make significant contribution to length and quality of our lives that are at least roughly comparable to the contributions of genetics. In this Webinar, Dr. James Connolly will speak about how psychological characteristics (such as risk avoidance, conscientiousness, and positive attitudes) work in conjunction with lifestyle factors (such as a whole foods diet, moderate levels of physical activity, positive social networks) to promote longevity and wellness while we age. 


Presenter: James J. Connolly, PhD received his undergraduate and graduate

training in psychology at the University of Chicago and the University of

Michigan. He has worked as a clinical and forensic psychologist in Connecticut

since 1987. He is currently the President of the Forensic Division of the

Connecticut Psychological Association and a board member of the Connecticut

Psychological Association. He has also received several research grants to pursue a

longitudinal study of 300 Connecticut couples who were engaged to be married in

the late 1930s, now referred to as the Kelly/Connolly Longitudinal Study (KCLS).

Dr. Connolly and his associates have performed repeated followups on this study

group since 1980. His last publication on the subject of psychological predictors

of longevity appeared in the journal Psychological Science in 2015. Dr. Connolly

is in private practice with his spouse, Madeleine Leveille, PhD, in Waterford,

Connecticut, providing court-related evaluations and professional opinions on

forensic issues.
