Travis graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1991 with a degree in advertising and immediately began working with the international ministry of The Navigators, mentoring students. After 8 years, his desire to better understand how people change and heal led to obtaining a Master of Arts in Counseling (2001) and a Master of Arts in Theological Studies (2003) from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri where he now lives with his family.


Managing Urges and Rewiring the Brain

Whether professionals conceptualize eating disorder behaviors such as restricting, excessive exercise, bingeing or purging as symptoms of psychological wounds needing healing or as addictive, compulsive patterns, everyone agrees that strategies are needed to manage and change these destructive behaviors. Based on the work of Jeffrey Schwartz and others working in the field of neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and rewire) this presentation will instruct attendees on a method for resisting compulsive behaviors that both helps decrease frequency of behaviors and rewires the brain to facilitate change at the neurological level.
