About this Event
Fast-track your skills in applying psychology to websites, apps and campaigns.
Our educational system contains two courses that cover distinct approaches to digital behavioral science.
Take either course. Or take both back-to-back for a comprehensive learning experience.
------------------------------------------1. PSYCHOLOGY FOR DIGITAL BEHAVIOR CHANGE [DBC]
4-6 Apr 2022 (3-days)
Over 3 days, you’ll learn how to translate psychological strategy into highly engaging websites, apps and campaigns. You'll learn over 50 behavior change principles, psychological design patterns, and go step-by-step through the behavioral design process. You’ll gain experience translating psychology into creative inspiration, and into standard industry tools for digital strategy, UXD, interactive design, editorial and more.
By the end of this class, you'll be ready to run behavioral design processes and use psychology in a wide range of digital media.
This is our most popular course and the one we recommend as a starting point for most people.

2. EMOTIONAL DESIGN PSYCHOLOGY & NEUROSCIENCE [EDP]
7-8 Apr 2022 (2-days)
Over 2 days, you'll gain deep insight into the emotions that drive online behavior while learning how to build technologies that inspire and motivate users. You'll learn the neuroscience of user perception, cognition, and behavior. Next, you'll go on a deep dive into human emotion, covering the full spectrum of emotions that shape how users think, feel, and behave online.
You’ll learn how to build for emotion with deeper insight using standard industry tools for digital strategy, creative design, UXD, editorial and more.
You can take this workshop at any time, and while there are no formal prerequisites, you’ll get more out of it if you complete DBC first.

WHICH COURSE: DBC or EDP?
We recommend DBC as the starting point for most students. However, if you only have time for one and/or can't make up your mind which one, check out our page to help people decide.
BRING YOUR OWN PROJECT (BYOP)
If you wish to bring a project to class, you'll leave with psychology-inspired specs and prototypes. In DBC, you'll learn the behavioral design process while building a behavior change product or campaign. In EDP you'll give it charm and fine-tune it with an emotionally intelligent polish.
ONLINE AND BLENDED LEARNING
If you can't make our classroom training, we also offer these courses online. Learn about our online training here. Contact us if you wish to blend classroom with online training.
Our classes run from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, with an hour for lunch and two 15-min breaks in the morning and afternoon. We don't supply lunch to keep our prices modest and to get our participants out of the room for a proper break. You'll need a smartphone if you'd like to join the group polls.
We offer two certificates. You will receive a certificate of completion for each course you attend.
If you wish to upgrade your qualifications, your ticket also includes 2 free attempts to write the test for these mastery certificates:
- Digital Behavioral Design Certificate (DBDC)
- Emotional Design Psychology Certificate (EDPC)
