Free Special Event Webinar: "How Science and Kindness Help People Change"
By: SMART Recovery
Dr. Foote will speak about the Center for Motivation and Change http://www.motivationandchange.com and its approach to helping families, including the new book, Beyond Addiction, by Jeffrey Foote, Ph.D., Carrie Wilkens, Ph.D., Nicole Kosanke, Ph.D., and Stephanie Higgs, and its interactive web resources: The 20-Minute Guide – especially for parents: http://the20minuteguide.com.
The Center for Motivation and Change (CMC), wishes to: “not only help everyone in the world access high-end, evidence-based treatment,” but: “To change the conversation. From the language of stigma to the language of growth. From defects to strengths. From shame to pride and an open heart. From punishment and confrontation to an invitation to truly change. And to change that conversation, we rely on science and kindness.”
Beyond Addiction and the 20 Minute Guide are already receiving high acclaim.
Dr. Foote is a nationally recognized clinical research scientist who has received extensive federal grant funding for his work on motivational treatment approaches. Dr. Foote has worked in the addiction treatment field as a clinician and researcher since the late 1980′s, and has developed a unique motivational treatment approach that incorporates principles of group treatment as well as research-based principles of human behavior change.

Sinai Medical Center in NYC, as well as a Senior Research Associate at The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA) in NYC.
