Our behaviour is being influenced all the time in all kind of ways. Campaigns of politici, like Geert Wilders and Donald Trump are daily under discussion. Can technology be helpful in persuasion? Or is it just manipulative? The (mis?)use of Facebook is being questioned by society.

But does that mean behavioral influence itself is a bad thing? In a therapeutical way it’s a tool. At the end of the day we will get acquainted with an alternative way of influence; hypnosis. Patrick Pickart will tell us about the possibilities in a therapeutical way and give us a hypnosis demonstration.

On May 31st, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., a variety of speakers will talk us through these sub topics concerning behavioral influence. The speakers will later be introduced to you in this event.

This event is an initiative by student association Complex in cooperation with Academic Forum.
