Lifestyle Intervention Conference: Intervening on Process Addictions at Home and in the Workplace.

This event will focus on cross addiction from the perspective of intervention,process addictions, eating disorders and EAP training. LIC was created with the intention of building a network of resources within the community of providers who serve those struggling with addiction.

The conference will focus on four key areas:

  • Advanced Intervention Training
  • Employee Assistance Training for Professionals

  • Love, Sex & Relationship Addictions
  • Food Disorders

We offer advanced training for professionals, which will help them quickly and effectively recognize, intervene, diagnose and treat those who need help. The Lifestyle Intervention Conference continues to be the most critical, industry-changing event to impact the health, fitness, and wellness communities in decades.
