Wendy Wood Speaking Topics

Changing Habits is Not What You Think

All of us have wondered at some point why we can’t seem to change an unwanted behavior, whether it’s overeating, spending too much money, avoiding work, or just getting into the same old fights with our partner. Despite compelling reasons to make the change and a concerted effort, it just didn’t happen. Any success was short lived, and we fell back into old unwanted habits. In this talk, Dr. Wood will explain the latest research on how to actually change our unwanted habits and, most importantly, to make that change stick. She will help identify common misconceptions about changing habits, including an emphasis on self-control and willpower. Instead, she will share new, more effective ways to tackle the unwanted behavior patterns that develop in our lives.
