Dr. Brewer is a thought leader in the field of habit change and the “science of self-mastery,” with over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training and scientific research. He is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Center for Mindfulness at Brown University School of Public Health and associate professor in psychiatry at the School of Medicine. He also is a research affiliate at MIT. He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, trained US Olympic coaches, and his work has been featured on 60 Minutes, TED (4th most viewed talk of 2016, with 10+ million views), TIME magazine (top 100 new health discoveries of 2013), Forbes, BBC, NPR, Al Jazeera, Businessweek, and others. A psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training for addictions, Dr. Brewer has developed and tested novel mindfulness programs for habit change, including both in-person and app-based treatments for smoking, emotional eating, and anxiety (www.goeatrightnow.com, www.unwindinganxiety.com, www.cravingtoquit.com). He has also studied the underlying neural mechanisms of mindfulness using standard and real-time fMRI and EEG neurofeedback. His work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and American Heart Association, among others. Dr. Brewer founded Claritas MindSciences to move his discoveries of clinical evidence behind mindfulness for eating, smoking and other behavior change into the hands of consumers. He is the author of The Craving Mind: from cigarettes to smartphones to love, why we get hooked and how we can break bad habits (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2017).
