Our guest today is psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Judson Brewer. He is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center, the executive medical director at Sharecare Inc., an associate professor in psychiatry at Brown University, and a research affiliate at MIT. Dr. Judson uses his 20 years of experience and research to treat and train those suffering with addiction, with a particular focus on developing awareness and learning to let go when you don’t have control.
His studies on mindfulness and behavior have led to breakthrough treatments for those struggling with mental disorders such as addiction, anxiety, and much more. His selflessness is what drives him to help others, seeking to reduce the suffering to the world at large. Everyone can take away something important from this vital conversation around mental health and building strong mental habits. Dr. Judson is an inspiration, and it was a pleasure to sit down with him for this conversation – let’s go!
