Dr. Geoffrey Cohen is professor in organizational studies in education and business, professor of psychology and, by courtesy, of organizational behavior at the graduate school of business. He did PhD in Psychology from Stanford University.
Much of Dr. Geoffrey Cohen research examines processes related to identity maintenance and their implications for social problems. One primary aim of his research is the development of theory-driven, rigorously tested intervention strategies that further ones understanding of the processes underpinning social problems and that offer solutions to alleviate them. Two key questions lie at the core of his research: “Given that a problem exists, what are its underlying processes?” And, “Once identified, how can these processes be overcome?” 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.
