We’re pleased to offer a workshop In March on mindfulness and eating for health care professionals with Dr. Jud Brewer, MD, Ph.D. Dr. Brewer (“Dr. Jud”), is a New York Times best-selling author and thought leader in the field of habit change.
We encourage you to join us for:
The Hunger Habit:
Methods to Transform Our Relationship with Eating
Tuesday, March 5, noon to 1 p.m.
Ideal for health care professionals who treat patients struggling with unhealthy eating patterns, Dr. Brewer’s virtual workshop will focus on practical processes for changing unhelpful habits and making healthier choices — and will offer continuing education credit.
Using examples from his work with patients and research from his lab at Brown University, Dr. Brewer will describe a practical process that does not depend on willpower or calorie-counting, but instead uses the brain’s built-in processes to enable lasting habit change.
You can learn more about Dr. Brewer’s work, clinical resources, and trainings at drjud.com.
