Recommend Faculti to your resource manager

When do people decide to do something about problematic health behaviours? Theoretical models and pragmatic considerations suggest that people should take action when they feel bad about their progress – in other words, when they experience negative progress-related affect. However, the impact of progress-related affect on goal striving has rarely been investigated. Thomas Webb is a social psychologist, interested in self-regulation and behaviour change. Specifically, he is interested in how people achieve their goals and make changes to their behaviour.
