Carrie Wilkens, Ph.D. ’00, co-author of Beyond Addiction: How Science and Kindness Help People Change, will speak about her book and experience treating addiction and compulsive behaviors.

Dr. Wilkens is a dedicated practitioner and researcher of the most effective treatments for substance use problems and compulsive behaviors. Her expertise is regularly sought by the CBS Early ShowFox NewsNewsweekO,  The Oprah Magazine; and Psychology Today.

Widely praised, Beyond Addiction offers practical advice for helping family members and friends who are struggling with addiction. Dr. Wilkens and her co-authors offer a message of hope, eschewing interventions and tough love to show family and friends how they can use kindness, positive reinforcement and motivational and behavioral strategies to help their loved ones change.

A book signing will follow. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
