Professor Wendy Wood is a research psychologist who devoted the last 30 years to understanding how habits work. She is Provost Professor of Psychology and Business at the University of Southern California, where she also served as Vice Dean of Social Sciences. Having published over 100 scientific articles, she received numerous awards for her research and teaching.

In this session, we explore the key insights from Wendy’s 2019 book: ‘Good Habits, Bad Habits’, exploring the science of how we form habits, why relying on willpower doesn’t work, and practical things you can do to make lasting changes in your life.
This interview was recorded as part of our 2020 Holistic Change Summit, which featured sessions with 25 world-leading psychologists, neuroscientists, and authors, who shared their latest evidence-based approaches to behaviour change.
