Short Course 40 – Lawrence Peltz, MD – The Mindful Path to Habit Transformation: A Four Quadrant Model

We all have habits, from seemingly harmless to life threatening. But how do they work? And what makes them so resistant to change? This workshop presents a simple model of four categories of experience—the benefits and costs of maintaining v. relinquishing a habit. This brief approach emphasizes mindfulness practice and works well with other psychotherapeutic methods.

Educational Objectives

  1. Describe the four quadrant model of habit costs and benefits.
  2. Demonstrate the place of mindfulness-based intervention in the treatment of habit and addictive disorders.
  3. Utilize these practices in psychotherapy and for clinician well-being
