Dr. Horvath’s topic is particularly timely during the holidays and looking forward to the New Year. The holidays can be challenging for many and we hope this topic will be of great interest to the community. Dr. Horvath’s appeal is wide, as he examines how any habit can become problematic and offers a window on addressing these tendencies across a wide spectrum of the behaviors that are not serving us well.
