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.
- 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.
- Utilize these practices in psychotherapy and for clinician well-being
