Program Description

We are creatures of habit. We often find ourselves repeating habits uncontrollably, whether constantly checking social media, binge eating, smoking, excessive drinking, worrying, or getting caught up in other self-defeating behaviors that disconnect us from ourselves and others.

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?

Join us for a unique experiential workshop on the science of habit change co-taught by Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, psychiatrist and neuroscientist, and Robin Boudette, PhD, psychologist, behavior-change expert, and mindfulness teacher.

The workshop will deliver practical tools for clinicians and therapists looking to deepen their understanding of the behavioral and brain mechanisms underlying habit formation, as well as individuals hoping to break stress-producing habits.

During this powerful 2-day workshop:

• Physicians and primary care providers will learn practical steps and simple solutions to help patients address unhealthy habits such as smoking, overeating, and anxiety
• Psychologists and psychotherapists will learn how to bring this evidenced-based model into sessions with clients seeking habit change
• Nutritionists and life coaches will learn how the behavior change model can assist clients in following lifestyle and nutritional guidance for developing and sticking to new, healthy behavior patterns.

The workshop will also be relevant both to mindfulness practitioners interested in understanding their own minds and habit patterns and to teachers of mindfulness who would like to gain understanding of Buddhist Psychology and the scientific underpinnings of mindfulness practices.
