Cravings, Addictions and the Brain

Join host Maureen Pelton, as she discusses mindfulness and addiction with Dr. Judson Brewer.

Judson Brewer MD, PhD is the medical director of the Yale Therapeutic Neuroscience Clinic and an assistant professor of the Yale University School of Medicine. A psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training for addictions, Brewer has developed and tested novel mindfulness programs for addictions, including both in-person and app-based treatments.

Brewer has studied the underlying neural mechanisms of mindfulness using standard and real-time fMRI, and is currently translating these findings into clinical use.

He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, spoken at international conferences, presented to the US President’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, given a TEDx talk, and been interviewed by media avenues such as Forbes, NPR and the BBC. He writes an addiction blog for The Huffington Post.

Learning Well – is sponsored by the Integrative Health Education Center of Normandale Community College.
