The secret to self-control : ACT, healthy behaviours and addiction (FRENCH)

$240.00 $225.00 + taxes

Cigarette smoking and obesity are top causes of disease, premature death, and human suffering worldwide. Day-to-day, they bring people shame and self-loathing. Helping our patients overcome these problems is very challenging and relapse rates are high. Fortunately, recent advances in behavioral science give a new and hopeful option for us to provide our patients effective tools to quit smoking and lose weight. That hope is in the form of a therapy called “Acceptance and Commitment Therapy” or the word “ACT” for short.

ACT provides skills for being willing to have cravings while focusing on what matters most in life. For the past eight years, I have led a research team in applying the ACT model in a creative program for quitting smoking and, most recently, for weight loss. We have tested this program in clinical trials totaling over 4000 people. In this workshop, we will unveil our program and teach attendees how to apply it the patients they work with every day.
