Modified on Tue, Jun 18 at 2:57 PM

Summary of the Course

In this CBT-based training, participants will understand why urges occur, why urges feel threatening, and how to gain a position of power over urges. 

Course Lessons

  1. Two Elemental Processes in Creating New, Healthier Behaviors
    Training the brain and healing the body are two things that can cause discomfort for people who aim to replace a longstanding, unhealthy behavior that has manifested physically. 
  2. The Acceptance of Discomfort
    In the case of behavioral change, discomfort occurs because we are challenging ourselves but consciously accepting and embracing discomfort allows the experience of behavior change to be empowering.  
  3. Creating Urges
    Creating urges and consciously addressing them makes those urges lose their power causing the brain to create new patterns and emotional responses.
