Jedi Counsel Podcast 69 – Psychology of Behavior Change, Part 1

Hello! This episode starts off with a brief discussion of the #MeToo social media movement that arose following the news coverage about Harvey Weinstein and those affected by his harmful behavior. For more information about #MeToo, please look here. If it it’s helpful, please check out RAINN. It is an anti-sexual violence organization with a website that contains resources, information, and a hotline (800-656-4673). Next, we begin an introduction to the psychological science underlying behavioral modification (i.e., behavioral change). We talk about reinforcement, punishment, and other aspects of behavior. Our next episode will discuss how you can use these principles to change your own behaviors and habits. Thanks for listening!
