How to Unwind Anxiety” Workshop by Dr. Jud Brewer

Faced with uncertainty, an overabundance of information (and misinformation), among other challenges, our minds struggle to keep up. Our brains default to old survival mechanism to help us deal with anxiety, which can lead to the development of unhealthy coping habits (e.g. stress eating) and ironically feed anxiety as a habit itself. In this workshop, drawing on his clinical work, neuroscience research studies and development of next-generation digital therapeutics for habit change, Dr. Brewer will teach you the underlying behavioral and neurobiological mechanisms of why anxiety and other habits are formed and how you can paradoxically tap into these very processes to uproot them. In the process you will learn how your mind works, so that you can work with it, including how to foster your natural capacities for awareness and kindness.

Jud Brewer MD PhD (“Dr. Jud”) is a New York Times best-selling author and thought leader in the field of habit change and the “science of self-mastery”, having combined over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training with his scientific research therein. He is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center and associate professor in Behavioral and Social Sciences and Psychiatry at the Schools of Public Health & Medicine at Brown University.
