Humans are creatures of habit. We often find ourselves repeating habits uncontrollably whether it’s the habit of stress eating, excessive drinking, constant worrying, obsessively checking social media, or any other behaviors. Why are bad habits so hard to overcome? Is there a key to conquering the cravings we know are unhealthy for us? How can we cultivate habits that support our health and happiness?
This workshop will be especially helpful for clinicians and therapists looking to deepen their understanding of the behavioral and brain mechanisms underlying addictive behaviors as well as individuals hoping to break stress-producing habits such as anxiety, emotional eating, smoking, and other addictive behaviors.
Note: this workshop will be led by Robin Boudette, PhD and Nancy Logue, PhD. (Dr. Brewer will not be presenting.)
