About Dr. Gollwitzer

Dr. Gollwitzer has written numerous articles in the areas of social psychology, cognition and perception, neuropsychology, and industrial and organizational psychology. Currently, his research centers on the psychology of action, self and identity, specifically on the question of how goals and plans affect cognition and behavior. 

One of his signature contributions concerns what he calls implementation intentions strategies. Also called if/then planning, it specifies the when, where and how of a goal-directed behavior.

Dr. Gollwitzer has been awarded the Max Planck Research Award and the TRANSCOOP award for international research collaboration. He is a Fellow in Academia Europaea, as well as a Fellow in the American Psychological Association.


Admission Fees & Door Policy: 

Admission fees help cover event logistics, food, drinks, video recording, and more. It's unlikely, but if you'd like to try and see if there's room last minute at the door without an RSVP (no guarantees), there will be an extra $20 added processing/hassle fee at the door. We've had some unfortunate experiences with this in the past, so thanks in advance for your understanding!

    Excellent presentation by Dr. Gollwitzer and great group! I His "If - then" technique to changing habits is easily applicable and is supported by extensive testing and research.

    I'm going to apply these both personally and in my work with my clients.! The people who attended asked thought provoking questions which helped take the application of Dr Gollwitzer's work to the next level. Very friendly people, too! Can't wait for the next meetup :)

    The topic of habits related to sleep would be very helpful as many people who attended last night, said that sleep was an issue (and is for me, too!)
