Background

Much of Dr. Cohen’s research examines processes related to identity maintenance and their implications for social problems. One reason for this interest in intervention is his belief that a useful way to understand psychological processes and social systems is to try to change them. He is also interested in how and when seemingly brief interventions, attuned to underlying psychological processes, produce large and long-lasting psychological and behavioral change.
