-- Dr. Sean D. Young
is an authoritative new voice in the field of behavioral science. Dr. Young knows a great deal about our habits - how we make them and how we can break them. He is the Founder and Director of the UC Institute for Prediction Technology
and the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior
. Dr. Young and his associates study cutting-edge and best practices for changing and predicting behavior, with particular expertise in health and medicine.
Stick with It
(HarperCollins Publishers) is Dr. Young's fascinating look at the science of behavior, filled with crucial knowledge and practical advice to help everyone successfully alter their actions and improve their lives. Please click here to see Dr. Young's YouTube video

As Dr. Young explains in "Stick with It," you don't change behavior by changing the person, you do it by changing the process.
Whether it's absent-minded mistakes at work, a weakness for junk food, a smart phone addiction, or a lack of exercise, everyone has some bad habit or behavior that they'd like to change. But wanting to change and actually doing it - and sticking with it - are two very different things.
"I help people and businesses by teaching them about human behavior" said Dr. Young. "I help them to predict events and to make lasting changes in their life and work. I specialize in health and medicine - and I also love playing music and Muay Thai boxing."
The University of California Institute for Prediction Technology
(UCIPT) is a multidisciplinary, multicampus collaborative, accelerating innovations that leverage social technologies to predict human behaviors and outcomes. Some examples of potential research applications include:
- Tracking risk behaviors to predict disease, crime, poverty, or other negative outcomes and inform intervention efforts
- Discerning predictors of political opinion, social and moral values, academic success, or community involvement
- Understanding how and why people use certain technologies, buy certain products, or follow certain trends
The ultimate vision is to become a highly interdisciplinary, multisector hub of researchers, data scientists, and community partners that utilize, evaluate, and refine our tools and techniques for a broad array of applications.
