Thinking About the Future and Behavior Change

with Dr. Gabriele Oettingen

Have you ever fallen short of achieving a goal you've set for yourself? Do you advise others who are searching for strategies geared towards fulfilling their greatest wishes? Do you want to learn about the latest research on interventions helping people to achieve their goals related to health, career/academics, and interpersonal relationships? 

Join us on April 30th for a BACK TO CLASS session with Dr. Gabriele Oettingen. Dr. Oettingen is Professor of Psychology at New York University, and is recognized internationally for over 20 years of research on motivation, goal-setting, and goal attainment. She is the creator of WOOP, a cost- and time effective self-regulation strategy that helps people find their wishes, set priorities, and fulfil their wishes. She collaborates closely with Angela Duckworth and the Character Lab to apply the WOOP (Wish, Outcome, Obstacle, Plan) method in the classroom setting to improve students' interest in learning and their school achievements.


    Dr. Oettingen is the author of Rethinking Positive Thinking: Inside the New Science of Motivation (published by Current, an imprint of Penguin Random House, in October 2014) where she offers proven tools for finding clarity in everyday life, clarifying our wishes, achieving the attainable ones, and identifying the internal barriers that hold us back. Summaries of her research, and a robust toolkit can be found at https://www.woopmylife.org. See also the WOOP app.
