Format: Self-Study Online Seminar


You know that science is a systematized organization of knowledge. You also know that studies are done and replicated to help us, clinicians, know what works and what does not. However, what is missing is how we best implement and tailor the evidence to then help our patients and clients live life satisfactorily, fulfill their self-actualization needs, and end their suffering. This missing link is evident particularly in the area of habits. And you are invited to this seminar to make this missing link available for your patients and clients. This is a 1-hour lecture-style seminar series and is open to all mental health professionals at all levels. And if you are licensed in New York as a psychologist, social worker, mental health counselor, or CASAC, you will be able to earn 1 CEU from each lecture-style seminar. We are excited to be adding this series, and we look forward to your joining us!

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:

  • Mastered how to help your patients and clients practice what always works and how to practice it efficiently.
  • Learned how to help your patients and clients discover what has truly been in the way and how, once removed, the result will be predictable.
  • Mastered how to help your patients and clients learn how to start and how to keep it going.

Who is this for?

This course is for any clinician invested in learning new or honing existing skills to be able to use in dynamic ways to support their patients and clients and to end suffering.
