005: A = Agenda Setting (Part 2) — How to Overcome Therapeutic Resistance: “Dr. Burns, I think I need help with my low self-esteem!”

In the last podcast, Dr. Burns described the eight most common forms of therapeutic resistance. In this episode, he describes his first session with an enraged, anxious, and severely depressed computer programmer from India who is convinced his co-workers are conspiring against him. You may be surprised to see what happens when Dr. Burns suddenly abandons the role of healer and instead assumes the role of the patient’s angry, paranoid and defiant resistance.

  1. Thank you for another beautiful podcast, I hope it’ll make it to iTunes soon.
    Do you have any plans to releasing Feeling Good Handbook for Kindle? I find it more useful and handy than the original Feeling Good book, and would love to get the electronic version instead of a paperback
