Chaucer’s will host an in-store book talk and signing with local author Cortney Warren, a psychologist and expert on love addiction, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Warren, of Montecito, will discuss her book “Letting Go of Your Ex,” which offers evidence-based skills and techniques grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help combat the overwhelming symptoms of love addiction.

Warren’s book covers:

  • How and why love can function like an addiction.
  • How to change the harmful beliefs that keep you stuck on your ex.
  • How childhood experiences affect adult romantic relationships.
  • How to avoid recreating old dynamics in a new relationship.

Warren is a board-certified clinical psychologist; and former tenured associate professor of psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Having won numerous professional awards for her research, she is an expert on addictions, eating pathology, self-deception, and the practice of psychotherapy from a cross-cultural perspective.

She earned her doctorate from Texas A&M University after completing a clinical internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School in 2006.
