Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Michael Bader will discuss the reasons why every year most people make New Year's resolutions, and why they don't work.

According to Dr. Bader's recent article in the Huffington Post: "The reason that New Year's resolutions don't work is that we have unconscious resolutions not to change. For every conscious resolution to lose weight, stop drinking, save money, call your Mom more often, control your temper, or finish that project, there are unconscious commitments to keep things exactly the way they are."
