Join Dr. Grinstead For A Dynamic Day of Experiential Relapse Prevention Planning

Join me on Saturday November 24, 2015 in Sacramento for an experiential Day of Relapse Prevention Planning. As you may know many people who are committed to recovery end up becoming dysfunctional in recovery and may even end up drinking or using again despite their best intentions. Knowledge is Power! To avoid a future relapse you must develop certain skills. In this day of relapse prevention planning you will learn how to identify and manage self-defeating ways of thinking that could justify a relapse. Watch my Video Blog Below and then Sign Up Now or read the remainder of the blog to learn more.

How to Sabotage Your Chronic Pain Management

There are many different ways of talking about that part of ourselves that both protect us and sabotages us—sometimes at the same time. Some people call this our psychological defense system. Others call it denial, while still others call it the inner saboteur. Have you ever heard the expression “the committee in your head?” For others it’s the angle or devil on your shoulder and for still others it’s the Zen concept of “monkey mind.” Please watch my Video Blog and then read the remainder of this post.
