P.E.P. - The Positive Experience Project

Main content start

Here's another wonderful project we're involved in, but we are not in charge . . . 

Overview of The Positive Experience Project

Working with two other researchers at Stanford's School of Medicine, BJ Fogg has helped create a new way to reduce depression in older adults. How? We help people create new habits, drawing on the Tiny Habits method.

Our pilot study results are statistically significant, and we hope to scale this project.

The implications are big: PCPs could use our program to treat depression, instead of prescribing medication. This is especially important for older adults.
