Redefining what's possible.
Keynote Address: Changing Self-Destructive Habits: Pathways to Solutions with Families
This presentation will discuss key aggravating factors that are contributing to the increase in self-destructive habits among youth and adults today, such as: self-injury, substance abuse, eating-distressed behaviors, problem gambling, and Internet and cyber-sex abuse. Research on self-change studies in these habit areas will be discussed. Strategies for transforming self-destructive habits into positive affirming habits through targeted interventions at the adolescent, family, and social network levels are covered.
