The Social Psychology of Health Behavior Change is the latest installment in Claremont Graduate University’s (CGU) longstanding social psychology conference series – The Claremont Symposium on Applied Social Psychology (CSASP). The symposium is being hosted by CGU’s Health Psychology & Prevention Science Institute.
This year’s symposium will focus on how social psychology furthers our understanding of a wide range of health behaviors. How do our perceptions and interactions with others influence our behaviors regarding health? How can we use this body of knowledge to modify people’s behaviors and promote health? How can this knowledge make a positive contribution to public health, clinical medicine, and relevant public policy?
Leading experts in the field will present their latest research and discuss current and future directions for this increasingly important application of social psychology. The symposium will provide a context for presentations and interactive discussions on a number of topics relevant from micro to macro; from practice to policy.
A reception following the talks will provide a more informal context for guests to engage with speakers to explore issues of mutual interest.
