Ten Reasons Not To Change

You’re eager to make the change. You know all the ways the change will benefit you. You plan to make the change. And then…you don’t follow through.

When change does not occur, it is not due to the inherent weakness or laziness of human beings. The “how to” concept found in self-help books makes perfect sense when we apply it to fixing things, such as a leaky faucet. However, as we’ve learned from over a century of psychotherapeutic thought, change isn’t as superficial as learning skills or following steps.

“The 10 Reasons Not To Change” is a much needed corrective and alternative to self-help materials offering the “secret” to making personal change, then leaving the reader unchanged. Dr. Ellenhorn offers an engaging, well-researched presentation that the audience will benefit from and enjoy.



About the Presenter


Presenter: Ross Ellenhorn, MSW, PhD

Title: Founder and CEO

Organization: Ellenhorn, LLC

Trained as a sociologist, psychotherapist, and social worker, Dr. Ross Ellenhorn has dedicated the last two decades to helping individuals suffering from severe psychiatric symptoms find the psychological and social means for remaining outside institutional settings and integrating into their communities with positive outcomes. Dr. Ellenhorn founded Prakash Ellenhorn, an intensive and holistic outreach program serving clients in the Boston area. Recently renamed Ellenhorn, the program is the most service-intensive, private community-integration program in the United States, aiming to serve clients—who are typically perceived by mental health professionals as appropriate for hospital care—outside the hospital, in their own communities. He has given talks and seminars throughout the country and abroad. For FFI, Dr. Ellenhorn has presented at two global conferences and at the New England Chapter breakfast on the topic of how family business advisers can assist clients when addiction and mental health issues become apparent. He is a graduate of the UCLA School of Social Welfare and recipient of a joint PhD from the prestigious Florence Heller School for Social Welfare Policy and Management and the Department of Sociology at Brandeis University.
