I’m Dr. Jud, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist at Brown University. I have over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training, and I’m passionate about helping people treat addictions, form new habits and make deep, permanent change in their li...
In my outpatient clinic, I’ve helped hundreds of patients overcome unhealthy habits from smoking to stress eating and overeating to anxiety. My lab has studied the effects of digital therapeutics (a fancy term for app-based training) and found app-based mindfulness training can help people stop overeating, anxiety (e.g. we just published a study that found a 57% reduction in anxiety in anxious physicians with an app called Unwinding Anxiety), and even quiet brain networks that get activated with craving and worry.
I’ve published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, trained US Olympic athletes and coaches, foreign government ministers and corporate leaders. My work has been featured on 60 Minutes, TED, Time magazine, The New York Times, Forbes, CNN, NPR, Al Jazeera, The Washington Post, Bloomberg and recently, I talked to NPR’s Life Kit about managing anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I’ve been posting short daily videos on my YouTube channel (DrJud) to help people work with all of the fear, anxiety, uncertainty, and even how not to get addicted to checking your news feed.
Come with questions about how coping with panic and strategies for dealing with anxiety — Ask me anything!
I’ll start answering questions at 1PM Eastern.
