Ever wonder why you do the things you do? This talk will help you understand why you do the things you do and why others do what they do too. Based on an approach that will take you beyond the outdated thinking that dominates psychology today, Dr. Pfau will unveil information about basic processes of your body that affect what you do, techniques that others use to influence what you do, how automatically and routinely you behave in most situations, and why. For those interested in further information, signed copies of his new book Your Behavior: Understanding and Changing the Things You Do will be available after the talk.
Richard H. Pfau earned a Ph.D. in science education and a B.A. in psychology with highest honors along with a solid background in engineering. He has served as a professor, lecturer, and consultant in human resource development, teaching at the University of Connecticut and working for many years in Africa and Asia. Dissatisfied with the state of psychology, much of his work and research has been aimed at developing a more up-to-date scientific explanation of human behavior.
