Attitudes and social cognition: I study attitudes and persuasion, the intention-behavior relation, goals, general activity patterns, prediction and change of health risk behaviors, and the effects of behavioral and clinical treatments in various settings (e.g., through meta-analysis and clinical trials). The resulting body of work concerns attitudes and social cognition broadly construed, and almost always has implications for understanding and changing behavior.
