Gain practical tools to shed old habits and change your relationship to anxiety with neuroscientist Jud Brewer and psychologist Robin Boudette.

Dr. Jud Brewer describes how he developed and tested his Unwinding Anxiety program.

Can anxiety and worry be perpetuated like a habit? Faced with uncertainty, an overabundance of information (and misinformation), as well as other challenges, our minds struggle to keep up. Anxiety levels are increasing individually and collectively. Our brains default to old survival mechanisms to help us deal with anxiety, which can lead to unhealthy coping habits—such as stress eating and internet scrolling—and ironically feed anxiety as a habit itself.

Neuroscientist and addiction psychiatrist Jud Brewer and psychologist Robin Boudette have some good news: By understanding how the brain works, we can begin to change our relationship to anxiety and engage behaviors and mental habits that support our health and well-being.

Drawing on clinical work, neuroscience research, and evidenced-based digital therapeutics for habit change, Drs. Brewer and Boudette guide you to understand:

  • Why anxiety and other habits are formed via underlying behavioral and neurobiological mechanisms
  • How we can paradoxically tap into these very processes to uproot them
  • A 3-step model of habit change accessible to anyone willing to attend to their direct experience

Join Drs. Brewer and Boudette, and establish a new way of understanding your mind, along with practical tools for stepping out of old habits and building behaviors to support and sustain your well-being.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone wanting to change their relationship to anxiety and other habits, as well as for health-care professionals looking to deepen their understanding of the behavioral and brain mechanisms underlying habit formation so that they can apply these principles with their clients and patients.
