Original Program Date :
We all have habits, from seemingly harmless to life threatening. But how do they work? And what makes them so resistant to change?

This brief approach emphasizes mindfulness practice and works well with other psychotherapeutic methods.
- Describe the four quadrant model of habit costs and benefits.
- Demonstrate the place of mindfulness-based intervention in the treatment of habit and addictive disorders.
