As consumers we are familiar with the idea of a personal credit score. But did you know that many prominent individuals and businesses also have a reputation ‘score’?

How We Change

Session Synopsis

Speaking to the core of our insecurities and fears about ourselves, with a humor and kindness, How We Change aims to turn our judgments about self-destructive behaviors into curious questions about them and teaches us to think about our actions to discover what we truly want - even if we’re going about getting it in the wrong way. The road to change begins with contemplation, says Dr. Ellenhorn, and by contemplating your own situation in light of these reasons not to change, you can open a path to greater clarity about why you have resisted change. And it’s only then that can you begin to actually change.

About the Speaker

Ross Ellenhorn, Ph.D. is a trained sociologist, psychotherapist and social worker. He has spent the last two decades across U.S. and Europe, helping individuals suffering psychiatric symptoms find the psychological and social means for remaining outside institutional settings.
