Craving for Ecstasy and Natural Highs: A Positive Approach to Mood Alteration with Harvey Milkman, PhD at PSU

People from all walks of life often lose themselves in pursuing counterfeit pleasures - cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, thrill seeking, sex, food, gambling, and on-line fantasies to name just a few. How does the pursuit of pleasure result in compulsion and loss of control? Craving for Ecstasy and Natural Highs addresses this fundamental question and then explores positive ways to achieve lasting happiness and fulfillment. Students of addictive behaviors and anyone interested in discovering healthy means to satisfy the drive to alter consciousness will find this workshop compelling. Thurs and Fri 8:30am-4 pm Sept 17,18 2009 For more information:   http://www.ceed.pdx.edu/addictions (click on current courses) or contact --
