Watch David Burns, MD, anxiety and depression expert and author of the NY Times Best-seller Feeling Good, which has sold more than five million copies worldwide.
Research indicates that most, if not all, current treatments for depression and anxiety are barely more effective than placebos. In most studies, fewer than half of patients experience even a 50% reduction in depression after treatment. Research also suggests that therapeutic failure nearly always results from patient resistance that hasn’t been skillfully addressed.
Now in this all-new training based on his latest book Feeling Great, Dr. Burns dives deep into why clients seem to cling to feelings of depression and worthlessness and how to tackle the distorted thoughts and feelings that trigger their depression.
You’ll learn about two different kinds of resistance that can exist within clients that hinder treatment, and how to quickly eliminate resistance and open the door to ultra-rapid recovery.
Prepare to explore a revolutionary, paradoxical, and exciting new treatment based on the premise that depression and anxiety do not result from what’s wrong with you, but from what’s right with you!
Discover how to:
Accurately track changes in symptoms from the start to the end of every session
Accurately track therapist empathy at every session
Avoid the “reverse hypnosis” that sabotages treatment
Distinguish between Outcome and Process Resistance, the two roadblocks to successful therapy
Use the elements of the TEAM—T = testing, E = empathy, A = Assessment of resistance and M = Methods—to bring about high-speed change
Quickly melt away client resistance
Crush the negative thoughts that cause depression and anxiety
Conquer your own feelings of insecurity and self-doubt and leave the workshop feeling great!
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a master of rapid recovery approaches for depression!
