Hello, all – due to a sudden emergency in the family of my beloved support person, I ended doing this webinar without assistance – so there are a few glitches, including not starting the recording until I’d made it through the first section of the slides – so for this webinar, it’s more important than usual that you download and review the slides – the missing section is a review of the basal ganglia in the brain – and that information shows up clearly on the slides.
What is happening with brains and the “decisions” we make that lead us toward and away from our addictions and compulsions? How do we support healthy decision making and get as much help as possible to do something different from old, unhealthy patterns? Do our brains get tired from making decisions? And what about that darned marshmallow test? In this webinar, Sarah will explore all aspects of decision-making that touch on addictions and compulsions, and invite new learning about the parts of the brain that are involved, and where to leverage our empathy skills to bring ourselves the most relief.
We will conduct this webinar using the Zoom webinar technology so that you will be able to see my screen with me rather than having to download slides, although that will still be possible for those of you who enjoy seeing the notes section of the slides where the research is quoted.
