Free Will is the currency of free societies; we exercise free will whenever we decide. Our decisions are the building blocks of our characters, of morality and personal freedom. Nowhere is the loss of this freedom more painfully obvious than in end-stage addiction. When it comes to working with the resistant client, addiction professionals are expert decision-ologists; interventionists are 'decision-neuroscientists', but rarely are we provided with the basic decision-neuroscience findings we need to enhance our trade. Blending recent insights from neuro-law, neuro-economics and decision-neuroscience with lively anecdote and learning, Dr. La Riche invites you on an interactive journey under the hood of our actions to learn what drives our decisions, our ethical dilemmas and meaning itself.
In this month’s Elements of Wellness Workshop Series, we will be exploring ways of incorporating weight management techniques into mental health treatment sessions and behavioral interventions into dietary consultations.
