David D. Burns, MD – Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety (Virtual Event)
September 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Nearly 40 years ago, David D. Burns, MD, a pioneer in the development of cognitive therapy, wrote Feeling Good, a book with an uplifting message: When you change the way you THINK, you can change the way you FEEL. Since its debut, Feeling Good has sold more than 5 million copies, making a positive difference in the lives of countless people, and cognitive therapy has become the most popular and extensively researched form of psychotherapy in the world.
Now in Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety, Dr. Burns brings us a radical new approach that makes ultra-rapid recovery possible, even in a single two-hour book-therapy session. Feeling Great emerged from 40 years of research on how therapy actually works and is based on this paradoxical idea: Your negative thoughts and feelings are NOT the result of some defect, like a chemical imbalance in your brain or a “mental disorder,” but from what’s most beautiful and awesome about you and your core values. And the moment you realize this, recovery will be just a stone’s throw away.
In Feeling Great you will pinpoint and eliminate the powerful forces that keep you stuck; learn that your thoughts—and not the circumstances of your life—create all of your feelings; discover why depression and anxiety are the world’s oldest cons; crush the ten types of distorted thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem; learn why self-acceptance is the greatest change a human being can make; and more.
David D. Burns, MD, is an Adjunct Clinical Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. More than 50,000 mental health professionals have attended his workshops throughout the United States and Canada. His weekly Feeling Good Podcasts (approaching three million downloads) provide therapists and the general public alike with tips to overcome depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, and habits and addiction. Dr. Burns lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. To learn more, visit FeelingGreattheBook.com.
