Summary: Humans can only grow and develop by upping their behavioural flexibility. Shifts in mindset can only happen when we’re shaken up by new experiences. But how can we expand our behavioural repertoire when our unconscious brain is a habit machine designed to turn us into couch potatoes? Psychologist Professor Karen Pine, co-author of Flex: Do Something Different, describes how making small positive changes can trick the brain into shifting gear. And how Do Something Different uses digital technology to help individuals and organisations unleash richer, more stimulating ways of living and working.

11th December 2012 AREN’T WE ALL A BIT OCD?
Talk to the University of Hertfordshire Twilight Club.
Summary: In As Good As it Gets the central character Melvin Udall (Jack Nicholson) is a successful author who is racist, misogynistic, homophobic and belligerent. He has been diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). In this talk I look at the portrayal of mental illness in film – what is OCD? Are Melvin’s symptoms typical or exaggerated for comedic and dramatic effect? Can he be helped by drugs, by the kindness of people like Carol or would behavior therapy have been more effective? Finally, I suggest we’re all a little bit OCD, attached to habits and routines that risk making our lives as narrow as Melvin’s.
