Mental Jiu Jitsu for Gnarly Habits – the Power of Cognitive Behavior Training

Jul 26, 2016

Changing unhealthy behaviors is hard. Making lasting changes requires more than willpower. Discover how cognitive behavior training can help and where you can get help.

Many people sabotage themselves and can’t seem to stop unhealthy behaviors. No matter how much people want to make a change, they get discouraged when the quick-fix solutions they try often result in short-term success that address the symptom but don’t result in lasting behavior changes. Then, they get down on themselves because they just can’t seem to break the cycle.

Making permanent changes takes more than willpower.

Employees who struggle with things like stress, tobacco, unhealthy eating, alcohol or lack of exercise often find it impossible to eliminate their unhealthy behavior patterns for any length of time. 

How do you help people making lasting change?


Help employees overcome the common barriers of lack of time, inconvenient location and schedule with online cognitive behavior interventions from SelfHelpWorks, the leading provider of video-based cognitive training.
