Curious about what influences people’s behaviors around health?
Or are you trying to figure out some of the issues around your health behaviors – such as flossing more often or exercising regularly. Here is a chapter that I wrote in 2016 that you may find useful. It’s from this book published by Colgate and although it is intended for dental professionals, it’s written in a style that is accessible to anyone.
In this chapter I help you analyze the influences upon your own or other people’s behaviors and guide in the application of research based understanding of these behaviors. If you are interested in a live webinar that offers you insights into health behaviors, please let me know and I’ll do one if there is enough interest.

This blog has been a long time in the making…and now the online debut coincides with difficult times for all of us. We are in a situation that we could not have envisioned, and that is making us stressed at best and at worst fueling panic and despair.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel and there are many things one can do while in the tunnel to make life easier to bear. We can learn new coping skills and practice existing ones. We can be mindful of avoiding harmful ways of coping, be they unhealthy eating, smoking, alcohol or other methods.
Soon I will be offering live webinars and call-ins so that we can connect and shore up our resources and remember to stay focused on what is most important in the face of all that is urgent.
