We are living through one of the most anxious periods any of us can remember. Faced with uncertainty and an overabundance of information, among other challenges, our minds struggle to keep up.
Our brains sometimes default to old survival mechanisms to help us deal with anxiety, which can lead to unhealthy coping habits like stress eating, overconsumption of alcohol, or compulsive social media scrolling—which ironically can feed anxiety as a habit itself.
Join Dr. Jud Brewer, MD PhD, psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and a thought leader in the field of habit change and the "science of self-mastery," to learn a 3-step process to uproot anxiety at its source using brain-based techniques and small hacks accessible to anyone. Based on his New York Times best-selling book Unwinding Anxiety, "Dr. Jud" draws on his clinical work, neuroscience research studies, and development of next-generation digital therapeutics for habit change in order to help you succeed.
During this first-ever Teachers Studio with Dr. Jud, you learn:
- How your mind works: the behavioral and neurobiological mechanisms of why anxiety and other habits are formed
- How you can hack your brain’s reward system to overcome anxiety (and other unhealthy habits)
- How to be mindful and aware, and other key components of unwinding anxiety
- How to foster your natural capacities for awareness and kindness
A psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training for addictions, Dr. Jud is known for developing and testing novel mindfulness programs for habit change, including both in-person and app-based treatments for smoking, emotional eating, and anxiety.
Join live on Wednesday, February 16, 7:00-8:30 p.m. EDT (4:00-5:30 p.m. PST). For registered participants, this class will be available on demand through April 17.
