Duckworth, Feldman Barrett Among Speakers in Webinar Series

APS Fellow Angela Duckworth will present “Grit: The Power of Persuasion and Perseverance” in a March 27 “Grand Rounds” webinar hosted by the Science of Behavior Change (SOBC), a program at the National Institutes of Health.

Duckworth, a psychological scientist at the University of Pennsylvania, studies how factors other than intelligence predict achievement. She focuses specifically on the demonstrated role of grit and self-control. She was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2013 and was an APS Rising Star in 2011.

The 1-hour Grand Rounds webinar begins at 2 p.m. The SOBC webinars are held bi-monthly and are designed to engage the public. Other upcoming speakers are Yale University psychological scientist Alia Crum (April 23) and APS Past Board Member Lisa Feldman Barrett (June 26).

The webinars are part of SOBC’s mission to improve the understanding of human behavior change across a broad range of health-related behaviors by developing funding opportunities, hosting science meetings and symposia, and disseminating tools to the research community.
