The Science on Giving with Wharton's Dr. Adam Grant

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2016 at 2:30 PM



Welcome to HumanLab: The Science Between Us, with Amy Alkon interviewing the luminaries of behavioral science.

Wharton organizational psychologist Dr. Adam Grant talks about his terrific book, "Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success," (now in paperback) which draws from research to explain what makes giving both powerful and dangerous to people's achieving their goals.

Paradoxically, it's often those who give without looking for anything in return—who just want to do good, open the playing field to good people—who ultimately get the most in return. But, Grant warns, there are caveats to this—and he lays them out in the book and we'll discuss them as well as giving's many nuances and benefits on the show.

Posted By on Wed, Aug 24, 2016 at 9:31 AM



Tonight’s show will help you stop pushing potential partners away by exploring why you do that and explaining how you can stop.

Psychologist Dr. Michelle Skeen explores how our “core beliefs” can set the stage for our developing unhealthy, fear-based patterns of behavior that keep us from having happy and healthy connections with others.

Join us on tonight’s show as she explains the underlying causes and how to yank yourself out of the unhealthy thinking and patterns and develop the skills you need to have loving and happy relationships.

Her new book we’ll be discussing tonight: Love Me, Don't Leave Me: Overcoming Fear of Abandonment and Building Lasting, Loving Relationships.

"Mindful Anger" with Dr. Andrea Brandt

Posted By on Wed, Aug 17, 2016 at 12:52 PM

Amy Alkon HumanLab—The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Whether you're an anger venter or an anger withholder (or something in between), this is a show for you.

My guest tonight, therapist Dr. Andrea Brandt, writes that “our culture has a built-in phobia of negative emotions,” which isolates us from each other and has myriad unhealthy and counterproductive effects on us personally.

Her goal—in her book, "Mindful Anger: a pathway to emotional freedom," and on this show—is not to help you get rid of your anger but to help you understand and handle it in healthy and constructive ways. You should, in turn, find that this leads to cascading positive effects in every arena of your life.

Depression: An Evolutionary Understanding, by Dr. Jonathan Rottenberg

Posted By on Wed, Aug 10, 2016 at 3:28 PM


Amy Alkon HumanLab—The Science Between Us,
a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

We have a depression epidemic in this country, now affecting more than 15% of the population, and it’s striking people at younger and younger ages. It seems clear that our current modes of understanding and treating depression just aren’t working.

My guest tonight, psychologist Dr. Jonathan Rottenberg, draws on research to show why we are failing to help depression sufferers and turns to our evolutionary roots to offer a nuanced understanding of why we get depressed, explaining why our modern environment’s mismatch with our evolved psychology can drag us depression. All of this leads to insights on how we might help depression sufferers get better, or, at the very least, not lead them to feel defective and broken because they are depressed.

His inspiring and scientifically rigorous book we’ll be discussing tonight is The Depths: The Evolutionary Origins of the Depression Epidemic.

Dr. Adam Galinsky: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, & How to Succeed at Each

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2016 at 3:30 PM


Amy Alkon HumanLab—The Science Between Us,
a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

On tonight's show, noted social scientist Dr. Adam Galinsky takes on the long-running debate about whether it's best to be self-interested or other-interested—a question Galinsky says actually misses the mark.

Delving into recent research, Galinsky explains why maximizing our potential for success takes doing both—sometimes cooperating, sometimes competing (and sometimes doing a little of each). He'll also offer some extremely valuable tips on how you can win at work and in many competitive situations through understanding and managing the nuances on cooperating and competing.

Galinsky's terrific new book, co-authored with Dr. Maurice Schweizer, is Friend & Foe.
