There are only two sessions left of our 2016 Professional Training Series! On Friday, November 18th, Gregory Boothroyd, Phd, CAAC, LPC will be presenting on Eliminating Self-Defeating Behaviors. Dr. Gregory Boothroyd is an author, lecturer and professor emeritus at Western Michigan University where he served as University Ombudsman, Professor of Counseling and Director of University Substance Abuse Services. His career-long passion has been one of helping adolescents and young adults eliminate self-defeating behaviors and training thousands of professionals on Self-Defeating Behavior Theory.

Dr. Boothroyd’s program is intended to bring into clear focus the inception, maintenance and elimination of self-defeating behaviors and what life could be like if they were replaced with more life-generating behaviors. Particular attention will be given to the irrational fears that prompt defeating choices, the array of techniques used to carry out such choices, the many ways we minimize the damaging consequences of these choices and favorite methods to disown any or all parts of this cycle. Participants will exit the experience more in tune with themselves and energized with a better understanding of both how and why self-defeating behaviors interfere with our personal and professional lives and what can be done about them in terms of life-generating replacement behaviors.

This session is free but registration is required as space is limited. Registration opens at 9am on Wednesday, November 2nd. For more information or to register, please go to
